  • This is the fantastic place for the art and sculpture interested person.This place is really liked by the art lover and also the people who are interested in human history.This place contains 3 museum and 1 art gallery and i auditorium.i museum is filled with art paintings and sculptures.The next museum is filled with architecture material and the 3 one is completed with human history and the history about the earth like dinosaur period.The ticket charges is very cheap 10 rs each person and 5 rs for camera or mobile.
  • We got a tour guide in English for free and it was great to see all the different rounds of school kids coming to the the different exhibitions. My favorite part was the contemporary paintings section and they have rotating collections so you will always see something different. A word of caution if you are a traveler: there are bathrooms and they were pretty clean but no toilet paper.
  • Besides museum Art gallery is much better and you can visit both on the same ticket just ₹10 and to click photos you need to pay ₹5 extra
  • Beautiful museum in the center of city chandigarh. The surroundings of the place if also very nice, a rose garden is situated at apprx 2 km distance from here. The museum comprises of lots of old and ancient statues of 1000-2000 year old. One can see fossil of trees that are millions of year old and looks like stones. Skeleton of multiple animals including dynoshore is present. The workers of museum are very humble. Best thing is Photography is allowed inside the museum so always go with your camera. One can by articles and painting s from the museum at a nominal price.

Where to stay in Chandigarh

The most popular hotels in Chandigarh tend to be located in Sector 22. Chain hotels usually occupy the corners of major streets, and particularly refined options boast views of the city's well-maintained green areas. Budget rooms can be found farther from the center and include a few hostels, guesthouses, and basic hotels in the residential areas. The restaurants and cafes of Sector 17 remain a major draw in the center of town. Located right next to Sector 22, the area also offers some of the most luxurious rooms in town.
