Very nice place to spend few hours with your family. The best part of entire Museum is the French clock which has a mechanism in which a parade by miniature soldiers is displayed every hour, beating drums mark the seconds and a bugle marks the minute. Kids would really enjoy this. Raja Ravi Verma painting is another attraction. Another important... More

Art Gallery is located at the Jaganmohan Palace. While the building is not maintained that well, the art collection is good. There is a collection of Ravi Varma paintings and by many other well known painters.

This palace was quite a disappointment. As soon as you enter the palace you find the ceiling in the portico area almost fallen down. There are some lovely paintings including a huge collection of Ravi Vermas. But they are all displayed quite poorly. The lighting was very poor. Lot of the artefacts were covered in dust. All together it is... More

This old Palace (there were originally 7 in Mysore) is more than an Art Gallery, as it displays lots more than just Art. Worth the visit, to learn more of the local culture and history.

It's located about 2.5 to 3km from the Mysore palace. It offers an insight to the old relics owned by the royal family from generations ago. It's features paintings from famous painters like Raja Ravi Varma. It exhibits the old belongings of the royal family like suits, turbans, swords, etc. It's a very old place with rickety wooden flooring and... More

Once a depository of Art and Culture of erstwhile Mysore State is now bereft of its former glory. It's art treasures are missing and maintenance is horrible. Museum of which we Mysoreans we're proud of, are now ashamed. No hygiene around the building. No facility for tourist whatsoever. Only deception and cheating.
