We were led to believe that this was going to be an Architecturally wonderful city with big bold magnificent buildings, well if this is the best Le Corbusier could do then I would not have hired him to design my garden shed. The buildings are drab and uninspiring and should have ben demolished long ago. Don’t waste valuable holiday time.... More

I was really excited to visit this museum, but was very disapointed. A very half-hearted effort to honour the architect and urban designer of Chandigarh.

We were very disappointed by complete lack of audio/visual, content or literature and no bookshop etc. There are simply some displays of photographs and some furniture without any explanatory placards. The place has a typical feeling fo apathy associated with places run by government. When there is no incentive to perform, i.e. you can't be sacked for not doing a... More

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

You must visit this centre if you want to learn about the history of this magnificent city, also if you have any interested what so ever in modern architecture. You can see pottery more than 6 millennia old as the city's built on one of the Indus valley civilisation sites. Learn about how 'Le Corbusier' worked with Indian architects to... 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.

ts located at Madhya Marg, Sector 19B. It might take around Rs.40 from Rose Garden or the Doll Museum to get to this place. Its a must visit place, that gives you the entire history of this beautiful city. Lots of pictures, blueprints etc. It is dedicated to Le Corbusier, the architect who designed this city.
