Its old and iconic gallery hosts some amazing art exhibitions of both established as well as relatively new artists. Its getting slightly worn out now when you compared to modern galleries. Very conveniently located in the Kala Ghoda area .. you can just walk from CST (albeit long but can walk from Churchgate too). There used to be an amazing restaurant in the gallery earlier called Samovar Cafe.. its closed now. But there are several options to eat around the gallery.

It was my first visit to art gallery. It was really a great experience. It is really a well maintained art gallery. Must Visit. Paintings demonstrated in two galleries on ground floor really carried me in different world and have triggered a new view towards art, specially paintings. Must Visit.

I was on a short trip with Family and it being a Sunday and good weather, I was fearing that visiting Jehangir Art Gallery could turn out to be a spoiler with huge crowd maybe and more because of the paucity of time at our end. However to my pleasant surprise, it is very well organised and the management ensures convenient movement around ... Extremey beautiful display of paintings , very well kept and maintained property , surrounded by natural beauty as well , and overall makes for a great time to spend !

Old historic gallery. A number of artifacts prepared by several artists are exhibited.

Condition of gallery can be better though.

Jehangir Art Gallery is an art gallery in Mumbai founded by Sir Cowasji Jehangir at the urging of Homi Bhabha. It was constructed in 1952 and the entire cost of this mansion was donated by Cowasji Jehangir. It is situated at Kala Ghoda, just behind the Prince of Wales Museum, in South Mumbai near the Gateway of India. They have 4 exhibition halls. Entry is free. They have various artist exhibiting their paintings, sculptures and other works of art here throughout the year. Its an art lovers paradise, though the maintenance is that that good. The location of this art gallery is so awesome that they could have converted this place in to a much better structure for display of art and have facilities for visitors to get educated about art and also relax and have some refreshments.

You get to see different types of arts here. The place is not so big. You can visit on the go and it'll take not more than 1 hour.

They keep changing the paintings and other art decals. I would recommend this place if you're an art lover.

Aditionally there's no entry fee. Sometimes if you're lucky, you may get to meet the artists.

This building is subdivided into five galleries all with exhibitions of their artists work on display for several days, and then the space is taken over by another artist or gallery.

Some of the work is extraordinary good. There is diversity of medium and I was fascinated recently by an artist that worked solely with copper - his skill was unimaginable. One hall only gave me a bad a experience - one of the staff with rottweiler mentality at anyone who pointed a camera in the direction of their artwork . Small mindedness has no place in art and we should all share what we know. I was a little worried visiting other galleries and decided to break the ice with the artist. Tell them I loved their work and could I take their photo next to it. Flattery will get you everywhere - even a free book from each of the galleries on their art on display.

I love this place. The rules on photography are general. If you want to photograph the artworks feel free to chat with the artist and ask. Allow an hour here for all galleries.

You have to pay to use the toilet here, but if you can wait the Prince of Wales Museum and the Modern Art Museums both have free toilets - and better cafes.

This is well worth a visit. Come relaxed and ready to talk to the artists themselves. Art without appreciation is nothing - I believe in art!
