Dusty old museum with ancient artefacts housed in dirty glass cases. Barely any info about french colonization and incredibly unfriendly staff. Best to avoid

If you have been to other Archaeological museums, then this museum will not impress you. The museum has many collections of relics - no doubt - however I had expected more.

Sculptures are well maintained. Staffs are there everywhere to guide you and also to ensure that you are not touching anything. Paintings are also nice

It’s a little, local museum with quite random objects exhibited. It’s right next to the park so it’s easy to just go in, make a quick tour and be out in 10-15 min. The display of statues of the Hindu gods is interesting.

A bit disappointing as few of the objects had a description still less any context of how they fitted in with Pondicherry. It wasn’t possible to take photos which might have encouraged me to do further study. This includes the Chola statues and Arikamedu Roman finds. It was as if the French had left in 1954 and no one had thought to update much.

Sort of strange museum with quite little information about the things on display. It’s basically a lot of stuff from different time periods. Everything from bronze statues to old furniture and a room full of rocks. If you have some time to spare it’s worth a visit but don’t go out of your way to fit this place in

A regular museum but you must visit if you are interested in History. We parked on the road. But later we were told that it was no parking area. Keep in mind this

Pondicherry Museum is very informative about the Indian history and frech colonial period in pondicherry. Furniture, crockery, toiletaries, vehicle all used items are being display. Various antique items likes coin, Jewellery, stone, bronze and stone sculpture, etc. are displaying there. Collection of weapons, guns, home used Material, arrow used by ancient people also you can see. Splendid painting will definitely amazed you. Printing press of Gutenberg model also you can see. Must visit place. Due to photography prohibited I couldn't picked any photos.
Opening time 10AM to 5PM except Monday.  Entry fees ₹ 10 for adult,  ₹5 for child.

Small museum with some good artefacts and collection, but seems poorly maintained. The items on display can use a bit of cleaning and maintenance
