  • Great place for art enthusiasts. It addresses many art works from history and the vibe of this place too good. The staff is so welcoming and warm. Washrooms are clean. The place is well air conditioned. It’s a must visit place if you’re into artistic stuff.
  • Great to see fossilized reptilians their evolution and destruction. The evolution of life on earth and the planet itself is beautifully painted on walls of a huge hall. A separate building which houses collection of miniature traditional paintings telling great stories of battlefields and life in general of the era. beautiful antique sculpture of brass and stone make you salute the great craftsmanship of the time. Modern art section also have awesome exhibits.
  • During our family tour to Chandigarh in May 2014, we visited Government museum & art gallery. The Museum building is actually a complex of three attractive buildings namely, Museum and Art Gallery- Chandigarh Architecture Museum- Natural History Museum. The entrance fee is just 10 rupees per head and It has a pretty good collection of medieval and contemporary art sculptures, paintings, miniatures,... , and also some ancient items. Definitely worth to visit.
  • Needs more attention as a place of tourist interest. The display and provenance could, however, be better displayed. The Government should draw more from the Archaeological Museum of Sarnath and the museum should be granted enough staff and funds to host thematic exhibitions, from time to time.
  • You will find 1st century statue to 17th century Persian shawl. Buddha with moustaches and medieval coins from Chanakya times to British time. I spent around 2 hours and if that's not enough you can spend rest of the time in library.

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.
