This museum is a 3 story building built in British period, looks like a palace. It has huge collection of sculptures, jewellery and painting and old weapons. All this make it must see. Must take a audio guide aids.

Can spend an entire day going through the exhibits. Fascinating to see and the building itself has immense historical relevance to Mumbai.

This museum is nice but not that impressive... + Many little workshops (for kids mostly) to create an item linked to the theme of the room. The workshops are not free. - the art collections are good but not amazing compared to European museums

This Museum is an excellent place to hangout and lost in the traits of History. Splendid display of human journey through all ages. Sections on Indian Ancient & Medieval, Tibetan Buddhism, Photographs of Mahatma Gandhi are worth mentioning. Immaculate, aesthetic display, with sufficient sitting area, this place is a must visit at Mumbai

Second attraction on mumbai darshan bus, Mumbai's National Museum. Beautiful scriptures and sculptures on display. Hope, every age group has something to learn and educate themselves. Serene and enjoyable ambience. Articles on display depict Mumbai India.

This is a really superb museum, equal to the National Museum in Dehli, with sections given to prehistory and focusing on Indian crafts. The textile section is breathtaking, as is the section on jewelry. There are temporary exhibitions, such as the current one of photos of Gandhi and of old Bombay in 1929, showing what an elegant city it was... More
