  • 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.
