Formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum, this is a beautiful building with an amazing collection of art and artifacts. I only wish we had had more time to visit!

Even if you are not interested in history, you will be trapped here once entered. Well arranged museum displays a lot of ancient history items, stuffed animals, birds etc will steal your mind. The building itself is a wonderful creation. One day required to cover every parts in detail. A twenty minute video 'Mumbai experience' in Marathi and English can be watched by paying additional fee (Now Rs.50/head) at the entrance itself. For camera another Rs.50 to be paid. You have to keep your luggage except ladies hand bag in the entrance counter. A food stall available immediately inside the gate. Rates are moderate. Wash room available near the entrance and inside the museum building also. Drinking water facility also provided.

My wife and I walked to the Museum from our hotel, using the hotel map. It was a flat walk and easy to do, especially after we learnt how to cross roads in India. We happily paid the foreigners visitors entry fee at the ticket office, just to the left inside the main gate (near the shop and cafe) and received our passes. We did not take an Audio Guide, as we like to view what we are interested in. We also like to take all the time we need to view the exhibits and we didn't hurry. We enjoyed viewing the gardens outside the exhibition building, especially the statues. We didn't pay extra to take photos inside and put our cameras away. We started by climbing to the top floor and found that on each floor, there is a corridor to an annex where there are more things to see. It is way easier to start at the top and walk down. The Art, Archaeology and Natural History exhibitions include some of the oldest artifacts that I have ever seen. Some pottery pieces over 4,000 years old. We loved the Japanese and Chinese artifacts in the glass cases and my wife really liked the sari and textile collections, in another section of the museum. The museum isn't modern and doesn't have any of the full room audio visual displays of prehistoric animals wandering through the undergrowth, like you see in other international venues. It does have however, have real exhibits, not make-believe ones. We spent around two and a half hours in the museum and a further 30 minutes in the shop buying souvenirs of our visit, including a Hindu statue and some nicely packed Indian tea varieties. A visit to this Museum is highly recommended.

This really is a place to visit if it holds an interest for you. Whilst it has some amazing artifacts and historical descriptions of the pieces it is well worth taking the audio guide, although at times it was not easy to follow. We found the Chineses and Japanese rooms of particular interest but like all museums it is what suits your personal interest. The museum was clean and well laid out with separate rooms dividing the exhibits. We have one critism of our visit, the washrooms were inadequately supplied, at the time absolutely no running water for hand washing so make sure you carry sufficient hand sterilising gel.

They have a large collection of miniature paintings and some ancient Indian sculptures.You could see the majority of the collection in an hour or two at the most. We really didn't think this was a special museum.
