In a city that is starved of any serious and meaningful art and cultural activity and spaces, Jehangir Art Gallery is a lone standout. While the exhibitions are almost always by local artistes and of very poor quality and appeal, nonetheless this space is worth visiting, if nothing else, to pop in the Samovar Café for a cuppa or something...

Located in the fort area of Mumbai, Jehangir Art Gallery is a treat for the art lovers wherein there are always a few exhibitions going on. Its amongst the few places in Mumbai to promote art. The restaurant Cafe Samovar is a icing serving some great food.

Jahangir Art Gallery houses some of the best paintings and art designs. There is also a Cafe Samovar where we had our lunch, prices here are quite on the higher side but the ambiance is made pretty well. The gallery also has washroom facility. Clicking photos is banned inside the art gallery. The place around the gallery is also known... More

Art lover looking for a fix in Mumbai? Give this gallery a go. A few floors of exhibitions, make sure you go to the exhibition on -1 floor, you can buy pretty much everything in display.

This is good place to experience Art in form of Painting/ Photos/ Sculptures. Mostly you will find some exhibitions of some well-known artist. But I found real art outside at lane of Jehangir Gallery where many artists put their paintings/art on fence and that is on sale at reasonable price. Work done by those artist is no-where less than some... More

Has an eclectic and well selected collection of modern art by continuously changing artists. Entrance being free, you can't really not visit the gallery.

There's absolutely nothing unique about this art gallery. It's mostly modern Indian stuff, which is not in any way interesting nor that much different from modern art in other cultures. I was looking for something unique here, and thus I was disappointed.

Had to come here for a glimpse of modern Indian art. I did not know what to expect but I was genuinely surprised how developed and skillful the presented works were. Besides paintings there are interesting art installations using materials such as metal/wood. Check it out!
