“Beautiful place but sadly neglected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

This museum is a must see for art lovers and artists. Paintings from famous artists including the peerless Raja Ravi Varma are on display. Lady with the Lamp is certainly the centerpiece. It has many other brilliant pieces. Management should be stoned in public square for allowing such works of art to get spoil and defaced.

“Skip it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

Although it has some decent stuff but the place does not carry a lot of information about it and some things were just missing without any explanation.

“Good Art Gallery”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

Not a best place to visit but if you are a fan of Art and antiques then it a must visit. It has more than 2000 collections of paintings, antiques and artefacts. This has a shop as well.

“Art and Antique”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

Palace of art and antique. Jaganmohana place holds the symbols of luxury and glory of Mysore Wodeyar family, it leads one to imagine sophisticated life the family would have led and families interest in art and artefacts. One gets to see paintings in Mughal, Japenese, Mysore styles along with world renowned works of Raja Ravi Verma as well as Halankar (Lady with the Lamp) and Mysore's famous Ganjifa Art, there are exhibits of ivory, bronze artefacts, a amazing collections of varying sizes of royal family photographs, battle weapons, musical instruments etc. If you are a person interested in art and artefacts this is the place to be in Mysore.

I was disappointed that musical clock is under maintenance :( and also the maintenance of the Place is not upto the mark. You can see debilitating roofs, Cobwebs and dusty covers.

Entry fee is Rs. 30/- per adult, camera as well as camera phones are not allowed inside. You can also witness performances in auditorium if it is scheduled on the day of you visit (Check local newspapers for details)

“Outstanding collection of Indian art from the 20th century”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

The admission price is totally reasonable, for what this palace houses. The down stairs galleries are less interesting because they mainly contain family artifacts and curios and furniture, and several rooms of paintings of the royal family. The curio and furniture collection is poorly maintained and looks sorry and dusty. Some of the paintings of the royals are very good, and the darbar scene is especially impressive. On this lower level, there is a gem of a room tucked away that has paintings by Nicholas Roerich, mainly of Himalayan landscapes.
Upstairs is where the fun really begins.The display totally overwhelms you, because so many little gems are scattered all over the walls. the Ukkil brothers Sarada and Barada are there, so are the Tagores , so are Chagtai (whose paintings of Radha and Krishna are modern and lovely, even though he cannot quite GET Krishna right) and of course as everyone keeps posting, an entire Room of Raja Ravi verma. The only Nandalal bose there is disappointing. honestly, the King was great and discerning collector an patron of Indian artists when they MOST needed support.
