This is a first class museum situated in a classic colonial building. Like many thinks in Mumbai, it is a bit dusty and and need of some maintenance. Definitely worth the price of admission. Beware that you will have to pay extra to take photos.
This is one of the musuems that might take more than 2 hrs to explore.But we could not spend much time as we need to cover some other places.But it is very nice experience to see all the antique items like old sculptures that had...More
I will recommend every Mumbaikar to visit the museum at least once,as it has all the past historical facts about our famous city once called Bombay and ruled by the British.
Also ideal for educational trips.
As you approach, you'll see signs for only "THE MUSEUM"
1. 80 rupees entrance… if you’re Indian. 500 if you’re not. You can pay in US dollars, $8.
2. You’re supposed to buy a “photopass” wristband if you want to take pictures. Three levels: cellphone...More
This museum has headsets with different languages, which is nice for outside visitors. Everything is displayed nicely and distributed across 3 floors, and a few items are outside. There is a small place to grab something to eat and drink in the restaurant.
Good museum, very well maintained, clean beyond our expectations. All the exhibits were well maintained. The museum store is also good and so is the cafeteria. But all activities for kids like Buddhist prayer flag making, coin making/printing, turban wearing were closed, unmanned despite being...More
I happened upon this excellent continental food restaurant after visiting the CHHATRAPATI SHIVAJI MAHARAJ VASTU SANGRAHALAYA Museum (which was great.) I loved its laid back but hip atmosphere, its size (not too big but not a hole in the wall either) and especially its food....More
Formerly known as the Prince Of Wales museum, it is an ideal place to visit where objects of historical, scientific, artistic, cultural interest are stored and exhibited. People visiting Mumbai with families could spend a good 2 hours admiring the well preserved and maintained exhibits....More
Undeniably among the most historic neighborhoods, Fort binds the entire city together. Those wanting to learn more about the roots of Mumbai will have a treat picking up cues here. From Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) (Mumbai’s most recognised railway station) to the famed Town Hall and some of the oldest bazaars, Fort reflects Mumbai’s rich past in ways that few neighborhoods do. Popular for its family-run Parsi
restaurants, special Gujarati thalis and khau-gullies, Fort is also the home for ‘Kala Ghoda’, Mumbai’s famous art district. Home to celebrated museums, art and handicraft galleries, trendy cafes and streets adorned with abstract art, this funky neighbourhood is a confluence of old world charm and fearless creativity of the local artists. One should not miss the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival held every year in February when the whole area transforms into a carnival for art lovers.
