I'm so glad that we visited. I took my two boys, ages 4 and 6, and we really enjoyed reading the pictures/paintings in the museum, seeing the movie, and meditating in the meditation hall. It was incredibly tranquil and peaceful. Highly recommend to everyone. There is also a nice bookstore where we picked up a number of children's books in English.

Museum is well done with informative displays on Swami Vivekananda and Indian spirituality. The 3D film on the Parliament of Religions was well done and charming. There was an area where you could ask questions and hear the reply from a video display of Vivekananda, it was enjoyable. And meditating in the room where he stayed was powerful. Definitely recommend this sight if you have time in Chennai.

The place where Swami Vivekananda stayed during 1897 and gave lectures. Converted as memorial and have audio visuals. Located right on the marina beach road. The building's architecture is another beauty.

A Place for all age groups. the 3D Film Show of 15 minute duration is a must watch for everyone. The book collection for the philosophical bent of mind is vast, and adequate. 2 hours is spent just like that..

Swami Vivekananda's fame has dimmed somewhat over the years, but at one stage he was regarded as one of the foremost Hindu teachers in the world. The house contains an excellent exhibition portraying his life and teaching, and is a centre for further study.

This place is worth to see if anyone is impressed with Swami Vivekanand's thoughts and preachings. There is free 3D show in English and Tamil language which is very informative and eye opener.

The place where Swami Vivekananda stayed for 8 days during his stay in India, Ice House( now renamed as Vivekananda House) is open for public to get a glimpse of the life of one of the most prolific spiritual leaders of Modern India, who is credited with modifying the perspective of western world towards Hinduism and India.
Visitors can have a pictorial tour of what Swamy Vivekananda did in his various trips both in India and abroad, placed in a timeline, with quotes from his various talks. One can't wonder at the relevance of his thoughts to India and the world,more than 100 yrs after his time. There is also a 3D show about his famous Chicago speech, in both English and Tamil. One can also see the room where Swami stayed which is now converted into a meditation hall.
A visit to the publication stall next building is highly recommended.
Visit Vivekananda House and be inspired!
