Quite an interesting visit and a fruitful trip. For those interested in knowing about Swimiji, and learning his ways and doings, this place is perfect. For others, this is still a place worth visiting. The holographic presentation and 3D movie were really well made. The house is well maintained and the information is well documented inside. The entry fee of Rs. 20 is quite low for what you get inside.
Portray all past history..amazing time thee but still feel it can be maintained in a better n more beautiful manner so that the public can feel Vivekananda.
It was amazing about to know Vivekanand life. This is basically the museum on Vivekananda's life whatever he has done in his life you'll come to know to visit this place. Also you will also watch 15 minutes 3D movie about Vivekanand.
Very nice place. The museum entry is nominal, Rs 20/-. You can see very rare photos and articles of Swami Vivekananda. The 3D show is nice and informative. The employees are kind and helpful!!
Very immaculately maintained by Ramakrishna mission, this is a peaceful place. Swami Vivekananda stayed here for a few days after his Chicago mission. The 3D movie shown here is great. The ₹ 20 entrance fee is very reasonable
