  • This place is near to churchgate railway station(1.2km), CST station (1.6km) and gate of india (700mt). Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya is a Museum of Western India, is one of the premi...  more »
  • The museum houses a large collection of Indian art and history as well as other treasures from elsewhere in Asia. Displayed well and not in the usual 'dusty old style'. Well worth spending time here. ...  more »

  • Week days are less crowded. Well maintained place . And quite a bit to see for people interested in ancient civilizations. Reasonable entry fee RS.85 and rs. 50 to use mobile camera ..
  • Should be a first spot in the Fort area for a tourist. It takes minimum 3 hours to experience the museum. Ticket price is moderate. Expensive artifacts on sell. Almost best ambience... In museum ticket itself one can visit Natural History Museum adjacent to main museum... Buy special ticket for clicking photos inside the museums...
  • Very nice place for art and history lovers. Thorough visit may take more than 3 hours. If you're college students carry your IDs to avail consession.
  • It is one of the good airports. But why a taxi should be charged when they are coming to pick up the passengers. If someone has taken flight definitely the person is going to take taxi. Aren't flight people charging enough taxes.
  • Great place to visit. Entry is not very expensive and there are discounts for students. A great setting. A good collection of indian artifacts across three floors... one can easily spend 2-3 hours. Must Visit.

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
