“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

A nice museum with a large collection of Indian art spanning a broad spectrum of periods and art forms. The collection does not seem to focus on any specific aspect of Indian art. The musem is rather large and often has special exhibits. It does not quite compare with the National museum in Delhi, but the collection is still strong and well worth a visit when in Mumbai. It is also located very close (walking distance) to the Gateway of India.

One of the better managed and maintained museums in India. Huge collection of stone sculptures, old paintings, royal belongings, weapons...also has a section for natural history. A great place for kids to enjoy and learn

“Get knowledge about India”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I learned a lot about Indian religion and history. I didn't make it through the whole building, there is just so much to see. You should go for the audioguide!

“Great Building Uninspiring Collection”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

good shop at entrance, particularly for books on bombay/mumbai history. they have recently created a downstairs exhibition of sculpture from across the subcontinent but sadly like most museums in India there is little sense of social & historical context and the spaces/places that they came from. nicely lit though. the other floors are in need of funds and better curatorial management. the collections seem haphazard and don't seem to relate to each other. I left feeling disappointed and frustrated. I know that this is an extraordinary country with a rich and complex social, geographical, architectural and artistic history that I had little to no sense of as i wandered through these rooms. These objects could tell fascinating stories in the hands of the right curators.
