“great building, just ok displays”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

The building and gardens of this museum are beautiful and well worth the trip. The displays (at least the natural history part with stuffed animals) were acceptable but nothing exciting. A lot of stuff to look at without especially good or in-depth info. Wouldn't suggest paying to carry a camera or video...not worth it.

“A jewel tucked away from Mumbai-ites”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This is a fabulous museum, and like all things in Mumbai - is quite compact - not grand or large like other museums I have visited. The exhibits are fantastic and the staff is quite friendly. This museum also has options of electronic audio Guides that one can hire for afee. I did not however use it. Not all sections are air conditioned, but the high ceilings in this Gothic styled building ensures that even in summer it can be cool.
