  • Very good collection of paintings and sculptures. If you are interested in art, this is a must visit for you in Chennai. 
  • One of the oldest in India, the building itself is absolutely beautiful. It has works from mughal era, Ravi Varma, etc. 
  • The Gallery of the bronzes of the "Museum complex Govt" exposes the most magnificent collection of bronzes found in India. Splendid Shiva Nataraja is one of the notable artworks in the world.

  • Well maintained
  • its a very nice place...
  • nice place. informative.
  • Good
  • Apart from Art Gallery, we can also find Museum , Victoria hall (closed) in the same compound. The museum is well maintained. Especially bronze gallery is worth watching. The museum of archeology , zoology are brilliant. There are some sculptures that are as old as 10th Century B.C. You have to pay Rs200 if you want to take pictures in side the museum or art gallery. The art gallery contains the paintings of many British rulers, paintings of Raja Ravi Varma and others. Museum for Children is equally good. It takes more than six hours to visit every part of the museum.
