For everyone who loves design. Global influence on indian desing (islamic, portuguese, dutch, british, swiss) and indian influence on global classics (e.g bauhaus...). Very small exhibition but suprising mix of impressions.

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya has some wonderful exhibitions - it was an afternoon well spent! There are many different exhibitions throughout the Museum and the audio tour allows you to learn that little bit more about different areas of the Museum. It can get a bit crowded and busy when school groups arrive - but that is part... More

If you did not visit this museum, you missed most important thing in Mumbai. All collections are attractive & superb. Natural History Section is wonderful. There are 11 different types of owls preserved.

The best museum I have ever seen!! Huge palace full of ancient art, weapons, coins!!! No one can get bored here. However, it may be tiring for oldies and small children as the area is huge. Nicely maintained place. There is some nominal entry fees too. But highly recommended to see ancient Mumbai..

They have a quite varied collection. The Indian sculpture gallery and the miniatures gallery are particularly good. You could easily skip the European paintings and the Chinese snuff bottle collection if time is short! The building is a gem!

This is a fairly nice place to visit. One could spend more than an hour or two wandering through the different exhibits. If you have an interest in India history or culture this is probably the place to see it. A wide range of exhibits which are for the most part well maintained.

An interesting spot to visit. A large museum with art, artifacts. The area is quite large and hence be prepared to walk. Invest in an audio guide at the entrance as it is useful. A number of classrooms and halls where lectures are also held. Popular with school groups.

We spent a small amount of time here. In this busy city, it is always nice to have a quiet space to relax. This was interesting. A bit of a walk which was welcomed. Depending what you want to see in Mumbai, this may fit into your travel itinerary.
