About Government Museum and Art Gallery
Encapsulating an alluring history to it, Government Museum & Art Gallery was brought into existence along with the partition of India in 1947. Before partition, the properties inside the museum were decorated in the Central Museum. However, post partition, up to 6% of all the properties in Central Museum was adopted by Pakistan, others shifted to Government Museum & Art Gallery of Chandigarh.
Clasping a grand exhibition of various Pahari and Rajasthani paintings, Gandharan sculptures, decorative arts and more, the museum is surely one of the most exquisite tourist attractions in Chandigarh. A great place to learn and admire the rich history of our country, the museum is a must visit.
