Beautiful old building and grounds--- with a little cafe on site and toilets--- in Colaba near other nice places to visit. I made a quick overview of several of the galleries, and then focused on the special exhibit of the Cyrus cylinder. Nice collection overall--- and nice ambiance. Small but high quality gift shop.

Had about half a day at the museum, for the price foreigners pay you get the audio-guide, which I thought was very informative and interesting- I listened to nearly every stop. While sometimes I can get a bit bored with the amount of details some audio-guides go into, this one was perfect. It was interesting to learn a bit more about Hinduism.

The museum is well maintained, and the grounds are well kept. There is a nice little shop for any trinkets, and we went for a snack at the cafe afterwards- the man who served us was very friendly!

All in all a great afternoon in Mumbai.

I went here with my daughter and her friend during the Egyptian showcase. Must say was pleasantly surprised with the Real Mummy display and the 3D show on the Egyptian History. Overall a nice educational trip for my Kid. She loved it.

The museum is looking very good, inside and outside. I was pleased to see the Cyrus Cylinder. The Antwerp show was a treat.
