In the compound of the zoological gardens in Byculla,Mumbai stands an architectural gem, the Bhauji Daji Lad Museum. Restored a few years ago the museum has an interesting permanent collection and is the venue for many visiting exhibits too.

Despite being a Mumbaikar it was my 1st visit with 3 young kids. All of us enjoyed the various interactive areas of the museum very much. Few unique activities and fun-games - table tennis or verbal 'Kabadi'. All this in addition to educative exhibits about Mumbai of 17th, 18th and 19th century. Several young volunteers and museum enthusiasts have set... More

At the end of the day, it's safe to say that this is definitely the best museum I have ever visited in India. It is no secret that when it comes to museums, India isn't exactly the hottest destination, but this is a step forward. A person of any age will enjoy the museum, especially an art lover. There are... More

Artefacts, works of artisans using different material, tools, implements, maps, coat of arms used during different ages, life under various rulers and the diaspora of population in Mumbai is showcased with well...

Nice museum in a very nice building; not to big so with a few hours you will be through. The museum organizes special events (now it was about children play's with also hands on possibilities for kids and grown ups). Pity that outside statues are partially broken, but all in all it is a nice place. My only negative point... More

This tranquil spot housing a beautiful museum is worth spending a couple of hours in. In this amount of time you will get to know how Bombay came into being from its original avatar of seven islands. You will know a brief history of the original people of this place.. the one who built it into the city that she... More

Loved this museum, it's so clean and the exhibitions are both historical and modern. Love the steel bus!! It's actually the cleanest most well kept building I have seen in India! Not much in the cafe,, just cokes and biscuits so don't expect a lunch...

Its a decent museum near the Byculla Zoo. The main feature of this Zoo is a truck made out of some metal pieces. Its quite beautiful and one can see his/her face clearly in each of those individual pieces. Very neatly made. The museum has good artifacts and the museum lovers will enjoy.
