Thoughtfully laid out, lovingly restored, housing a most impressive collection of Indian antiquities and history, Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum is a MUST visit attraction.

If you are getting a taxi make sure to drop off at the zoo as there are building works ongoing. Entry is RS. 100 entry for foreign tourists. 1000-1800 but closed Wednesdays. Beautiful building and some interesting items, there is a cafe and small shop.

Very well maintained after a decade of renovations. Good presentation of artifacts and a free guided tour over weekend is a plus. Since it is in the Byculla Zoo compound so there is no excuse of not visiting. The museum is small and takes about...More

Due to renovation work in the nearby zoo, the main gates of this museum are closed, and the only way to reach it is through the Mumbai Zoo. The museum has a good collection of various artwork made from different materials, from metal to coconut.

Bhau Daji Lad museum is the oldest museums in Mumbai. The best part is the beautiful interiors of the museum. Most of the artifacts are between the 19th and 20th century and show the life of Mumbai during this period. Fine collection of Ivory, brass...More
