  • Museum is located in a serene place in Pondicherry. All the items are arranged beautifully. The staff is cooperating. The most important thing in a museum is the guide and this museum lacks that. Though the staff shows us everything they do not explain the historical significance of the items displayed there.
  • Interesting place. All historic items preserved are having a detailed notes attached. Even a non history person would find it quite convenient to understand. Ancient weapon section and pottery section are wonderful.
  • 50 rupees for foreigners. Worth it for a half hour break from the sun. Wasn’t too busy. I reckon my cash will pay for the electricity bill, so many fans keeping the staff cool. Interesting enough artifscta covering transport, furniture, coins etc. Favourite thing was the wall chart covering world history. Going to see if I can buy a copy, wish I had that during a-level. No photography allowed.
  • Nice place... Not much to see still many old things you will be able to find here... It takes some 20 mins to see the entire museum... Small but nice
  • The place itself has become so antique to be kept in a museum.. requires alot of maintaining work.. the description on the antiques are missing.. the wooden carts are in vulnerable condition
