Tanjore has five museums of repute in the city, and they do an excellent job of preserving the cultural and historical heritage of the city. These museums are Archaeological Museum, Tamil University Museum, The SaraswathiMahal Library Museum, Raja Chola Museum and Nayak Durbar Hall Art Museum. All these museums are home to some of the finest relics, artefacts and manuscripts. A visit to the Art Gallery in the Royal Palace; which houses sculptures in bronze from the Chola period is also interesting. Anybody interested in the history of Tanjore, should not miss on these.
