What Visitors Say About Mysuru Sand Sculpture Museum
I was expecting this to be a huge museum in a large warehouse but turns out that it is very small and hosted inside a patchwork shed. The skill of the artist is really to be admired but the visit left a bad taste on mouth when the vendors around the museum tried every tactics to buy stuff. Also even the tea near the museum was charging double the normal price unfortunately.
