I was taken to this museum by my Indian host. It was wonderful, telling the story about how Chandigarh was designed in sectors, each fairly self-sufficient with relatively wide and fast roads around the outsides and narrower, slower-moving roads inside. The museum shows the original plans in various forms and drafts. There are many panels explaining the background. There is... More

Not many people know of the Corbusier Centre which is shaping up to be a first stop for Corbusier lovers from all over the world. One gets the flavour of the inception of Chandigarh and Corbusier's early inputs.

Le Corbusier centre is a must visit when in Chandigarh purely because you will WANT to know the story behind the making of this amazing city!! My first visit to Chandigarh and I was bowled over by this city!! Everything looks and seems planned and organized. The city has an amazing green cover and apparently third largest in India after...

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
