The museum presents the history of Chandigarh and its weird layout. Next to the museum is another exhibition of prehistoric life. If that is not your thing-skip. The art gallery exhibits a wide range of local art from classic to modern. Well-worth it

A well known and must visit place. This place is easily accessible @ entry fee of Rs. 10. and they would charge extra in case you would like to click pictures - Well Maintained - Commendable Architecture - A guide is needed in order to know things better about the architecture

It is well worth visiting the Architecture Museum (housed in the City Museum) first, before you start exploring the city. The comprehensive and well-displayed exhibition explains the rationale for the building of Chandigarh and how the architects approached their task, as well as showing the layout of the city, housing designs, etc.

Do not expect an international class but there is one good reason to go : the mixture between art and late Le Corbusier architecture. Some pieces are interesting and the miniature collection should interested specialists.

For anyone interested in the history of Chandigarh the Architectural Museum is a must, and on this occasion would recommend one of the guides. If you can visit here first before going to other attractions then would help understand the layout of the city, where to go and visit etc. The guide helped us through the exhibits from the initials...
