This is an astonishing Museum - if you want to get a sense of what the Great Exhibition of 1851 was like, or how the Victoria and Albert Museum originally looked like - this is the place.
After having gone through an extensive renovation the Museum has been re-opened. Walk into soaring hallways, thin metal columns holding up the tiered landings, beautifully painted ironworks complete a magnificent setting. The exhibits themselves are eclectic and give a clear view of Mumbai's history.
They frown on photograph taking unless you pay the fee but dont miss this place - it is far better than the Prince of wales Museum - go for atmosphere and for seeing a genuine jem.
