  • Well, this museum like any other normal museum contains old coins and antiques. But other than that there is a collection of swords, cannons and cannon balls that were used during ancient times. Also, they have a collection of tree trunks dated thousands of years old. The entry fee is economical and will take like half an hour to go through the entire museum.
  • Nice place to spend a lazy afternoon on the day of arrival in Puducherry. They have very nice artifacts, coins, weapons, swords and statues. Also good to see some french antiques. And a bit on old carriages.
  • This has an entry fee of 10 rupees, but for foreigners it's 50 rupees. You are not supposed to touch the artifacts and videography and photography is prohibited inside the museum. The museum show cases the statues from Chola's Dynasty, currency coins of various times, Swords, jewelery used by women,furniture and transport of India and France. Furniture used by the French Governor is displayed. It's not a big museum but it is definitely informative.. It will not take more than 1 hour to see all the artifacts.
  • Awesome place to know the historic events and findings of Puducherry. The collection are kept from the range from Mesozoic age to the 19th century French and British rules along with our ancient Indian cultures. Entry fee for museum is just Rs. 10 per person. The museum is located just near the Rock beach.
  • Wonderful place. Rich collection of antiques. Loved the pottery section.
