Well worth a couple of hours to visit. Very informative exhibits on Hinduism and Buddhism (though sculpture and handicrafts) and a nice weapons gallery. Many more exhibits including on Indian textiles, Chinese and Japanese ceramics, etc. Would recommend this.

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
