Boring place if you are not the sort who loves museums and art galleries. Still the collection is worth a visit once. What really strikes you is the classical Indian apathy. You can see a huge number of staff within the museum. They'll be seen gossiping, reading newspapers, playing on their mobile phones. If these people can provide some information... More

The building followed Le Corbusier style of architecture. The museum has a good collection of art & sculptures. However the spaces inside are really welled designed & detailed. A good place to visit in Chandigarh for an art lover.

A quite extraordinary range of artworks. The tapestries are quite lovely as are the miniature paintings but I best liked the galleries full of early Indian sculpture especially the mediaeval period. You arenot allowed to touch but they look so sensuous that they are hard to resist.

If you want to know more about the history of the city and Le Corbusier's plans: this is the place. Plans, photographs, maquettes and even furniture are all on show.
