To just see a little bit, they have quite a few procedures to follow for one to get in. Also... because of all that security... doesn't seen like a very nice place to visit.. coz people can be very cold. Beautiful art though!

This relatively new building sits in the campus that houses the Lalit Kala Academy and the Fine Arts faculty. The museum is an adaptation of the "Heidi Weber House" in Zurich designed by Le Corbusier. The difference being that the former is out of steel and concrete and the Museum at Chandigarh is out of masonry and Concrete. It houses... More

Those interested in a modern city built in the f ifties by a world reknowned architect should visit this small but highly informative museum. Its director is more of a scientist than a guide, yet we found the exhibits fascinating. The museum not only shows plans and manuscripts of Le Corbusier but also some of his famous piece of furniture... More

Visited here whilst staying in the city, a museum that explains the concept and construction by Le Corbusier. There are photos, plans, models and documents to see. Quite a staid museum, but interesting for adults nevertheless.

A must see for Architects at least. The place is generally empty all the time, but Chandigarh is what it is today because of this. I love the city for till date following the principles of Le Corbusier.

This place is in Sector 19B and can be seen from the main road but very few people know about it. Our hired car driver, a local didn't know and I had to guide him although it was my first visit to Chandigarh :) We were in love with Chandigarh and compared to the rest of the developed nations when...

There were two large floors full of different sculptures, art (modern and dated) as well as textiles. It was 10 rps entry, plus 5 rps for a camera, took about 2 hrs to see everything at a semi-interested pace. I'm not very into art, but it was worth the time.
