This museum definitely qualifies as one of the hidden gems of Mumbai, because quite a few Mumbaikars themselves dont know about the place. This place got renovated between 2000-2009 and in my opinion deserves to be visited if you want to know about Mumbai's history....More

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

No one goes here, so you can wander around tranquilly (and that's in Mumbai!) in a lovely building. The array of Indian artisan craftsmanship is stunning. There are also good English descriptions provided. The figures of ethnic Indians upstairs at the first glance appear tacky,...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.
