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.

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.

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

Fort/Kala Ghoda
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
