This white palace is one of the most beautiful creations left to Mysore by the Wodeyar kings. The three story building was built in the traditional Hindu style and was built to serve as an alternative retreat for th Roal Family. The Art Gallery here holds an immense collection, most of which are paintings depicting epic scenes. There’s a curious French clock with a mechanical soldies parading every hour as well as an extecnsive collection of musical intruments, brassware, sculptures, etc. Be sure to catch the painting of the Lady with the Lamp.

The palace is good. It is an art gallery palace. But when we went it was under renovation. So we could not get the of the palace. The place is easily accessible if u have the google maps. The parking in the palace still is unorganized. It needs to be developed. Rest all is good.
Beautiful collection of art work, has a huge collection of arts of numerous artists. It is indeed a feast for art lovers who also want a taste of history. Also has items used by the royal family of Mysore. Has abundant place for parking and shops outside.
This place is nice however not maintained by the government and even some renovation is happening in museum section. Still some doll festival is going on, in which gov. Kept 25rs entry fee. Dolls was not actually Barbie kind of dolls these are traditional dolls made by local people's only.
One of the oldest and famous art gallery of Mysore, gives us the feel of how things were when maharajas ruled the place. Apart from housing paintings of Artists like Ravi varma, has a spacious auditorium for multi purpose uses like marriage, cultural events etc. Maintenance is not satisfactory, but one can visit as a heritage center. Has ample parking space. Location is also in the heart of the city in the vicinity of palace.
When I went there, some work was going on, but inside the exhibits are well-arranged and catalogued. Unfortunately, for some inexplicable reason, photography is prohibited inside. I believe photography of public monuments, temples etc should be encouraged so that pictures can be shared and more people would come & visit... As it is I came across very few visitors, as there is a general perception that there is nothing to see and the building looks a bit dilapidated from the outside
