  • The architecture of this museum is simply amazing. Also, the display of artefacts is perfect with good lighting and ambience. Luckily, my classmates and I even got a chance to see the conservation department of the museum.
  • Old school museum with a lot of really great things including Japanese and Chinese art, metal work. The swords were really interesting as was the pre-historic bit. Nice museum shop (located outside ticketed area so you can visit the shop without entering the museum if you like) Start at the top and wind down.
  • Khup chan aahe
  • Amazing architecture but its a pity the place isnt that well visited. For starters the view of the building is obscured by dense trees so one can hardly notice it from the road outside. Many people cross it daily without even realizing its presence! Once you enter the gates the building is clearly visible and may even surprise you with its grandeur. The collection inside is worth visitng as well for those who love art and history....
  • The Mumbai museum has a slightly random and not a huge collection but is worth a visit nevertheless. The museum has vastly improved from some years ago. Some exhibits have been revamped and are in a much better state now. The ticket counters, museum shop, cafeteria and the attitude of the staff are much improved. If you haven't visited in a while, do visit again.
