  • Though I imagined that it would be a short visit, I enjoyed and appreciated the labor behind the sculptures themselves. The place is definitely to be visited purely for the novelty factor of nothing else. I could hardly construct a fort in sand, but the artist has created flowing sculptures in it. Truly remarkable. There are shops which sell your regular tourist merchandise - check out at your own risk. There's a small trampoline for kids - bonus point for having items to engage them. There is also a 3D photo museum where you can stand in correct poses to get a very realistic effect. It's fun, so don't miss it. But if you're pressed for time, skip it.
  • The sculptures are made of clay, to retain its beauty for a long time. The artist has taken big effort to showcase the culture of Mysuru and its famous personalities. A must visit for those who love art. But the ticket charges are bit high. There is a separate ticket counter inside for the 3-D show I think.
  • Very less sculptures are there. It will take hardly 30 minutes to see the museum. It's a bit of disappointment since there was too little to see. It can be expanded to attract more crowd. The sculptures of figures from various civilizations were good. Harrapan civilization's the priest figurine was precise. However Egyptian was little disfigured. Good place for art lovers.
  • It's a small place with some beautiful sculptures. There is a selfie gallery inside which has separate entrance ticket. I did not feel it was worth it. You can find small shops selling sandal items, souvenirs and toys some of which are actually good. You can bargain with the vendors. Well maintained and clean.
  • One of the best sand sculpture museums so far I had visited. One Can spend at least 2 hours there. Kids can have good time. Near by there is sea shell museum people can visit. Archery is also there for RS.30 .
