A must Visit.

You need to visit it to experience what they have. The children also love to be a part of it and enjoy being there.

A rare collection of fossils from Masol area near Chandigarh greets you the moment you set foot in the arts museum.

Spread in a lush green campus, gives good sense of tranquility and peace of mind. Ticket priced at Rs10 is a deal for such a rich collection of Art, sculptures and hand crafted works from bygone era. I recommend to visit this if you have one hour to spare in Chandigarh.

Worth a visit . Beauty inside the beautiful Chandigarh city . The environment is calm and green. One can always view the sculptures outside and indoors also see the mesmerising artwork in their galleries.

Fun visit to the museum. Used their free guide services which was a great plus. Guide was very knowledgeable and patient and spent time with us speaking about art and artists that were of particular interests to us.

I really enjoyed visiting this museum. The price was the same for Indians and foreigners (10 INR only and 5 INR to take a camera). The building itself looked a bit old but the collections were relatively well organized. I particularly enjoyed the miniature paintings and the links between Hindu and ancient Greek sculptures. I had never seen so clearly... More
