Drove pas it a couple of times, as we expected an imposing building. This museum houses a lot of letters, original documents, furniture and some of Corbusie's paintings (not original). Very good if you want to know about the making of Chandigarh

We really enjoyed seeing the spaces in which Le Corbusier and others worked, sketched, planned, and discussed the planning of Chandigarh. There are some original pieces of furniture (stools, drawing tables, chairs), as well as archival materials displayed on the walls. Although we were inspired by our visit, these documents and photographs deserve proper conservation and preservation for future generations.

You then begin to Also on exhibit are interesting exchanges that Le Corbusier & his architects... More

Chandigarh needs to get more attention for the value it holds. It is a jewel to be experienced especially if you love architecture. I would go back to India to be able to spend more time there. The museum is a great starting point.

This is a must for every tourist who wishes to connect with the Chandigarh's architectural journey from 50s. The place had been the workplace of the French architect Le Corbusier, where one can see his art, hand-drawn sketches, and B&W historical photographs showing the progress of the city's development. The Centre also has a small curio shop from where you... More
