  • Somewhere to take refuge from the sun/heat. No cafe but free entrance. Some interesting exhibits but not that good. Staff are quite polite except to each other; most busy on their phones!  more »
  • We went to the museum and there was a lot to see. As I'm a history person and I love seeing glimpse of the past. How things used to be.  more »
  • The cost is a mere Rs10 and the collection is informative, enjoyable and well worth seeing. If however you are a Nicholas Roerich fan and are hoping to see five of his paintings, you may be disappoint...  more »

  • It is a good museum and art gallery located in Sector 10C Chandigarh. The gallery has been planned and prepared by the great artists of Punjab around 1960. It has been maintained by the best art curators of Punjab. Entry fee and photography charges are nominal. Free guide is provided to the groups visiting the museum. It is clean, air conditioned calm place. A heaven for art lovers.
  • Chandigarh museum is one of my favourite museums. Ticket cost is just rupees 10 per person and you can find a lot of interesting things here. For taking the pictures, you have to pay only 5 rupees extra. The location of Chandigarh museum is very nice. It is near the rose garden of sector 16 of Chandigarh. Chandigarh museum is located in sector 10 and the both sector are in front of each other. As total of 16 and 10 is 26, which is divisible by 13. It happens in most of the sectors in Chandigarh. In the front of the museum you can find the Eiffel tower copy. The Chandigarh museum is very neat and clean and you can spend nearly 2 hours here. It is nice place to visit. Paintings, coins and so many other things can found here from different period. The architecture of building is also very nice. For a art lover person, this place (Chandigarh museum) is the best place to visit. Moreover, not only inside the building, there are so many interesting sculpture and paintings but also you can find them outside the main building also. My favourite sculpture is of Shiv Parvati. It is must visit place if you are in Chandigarh.
  • this museum has all the history about the how this magnificent city was built. you can see old documents and paper work of the le corbusier and his team. you can also find old artifacts sculptures and beautiful paintings by renowned painters. the building architecture is also amazing
