  • 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.
  • All eras of living system on earth with their description and visual aspects and architectural features of building gives immense pleasure. History of Gautam Buddha along with their monuments are placed by showing different aspects of their face according to various philosopher. It has paintings, coins from Mughal period to British India, some of textile art is displayed in museum. Museum for architectural features is located in separate building. Work of architect for making Chandigarh a Buitiful city is displayed with vast knowledge of architecture.
  • Amazing building and exquisite pieces. The museum itself is an exhibit and demonstration of Le Corbusier's incredible architectural insights. The museum holds amazing pieces from the 10th century right up to modern-day displays by students from Punjab's universities. Take a day off to do this museum properly. There are guided tours. Entrance fee is Rs 10 per head and an additional Rs 5 for a photography ticket. Loved every minute here.
  • love the small changes and upgrades they keep doing. The free audio tapes are great, but the text can be quite laboured for the 45 minute tour, especially as it is not comprehensive as yet
