    Located between the main gate to the administrative office and the BEST bus stand this museum opens between 2-6 pm, Monday-Friday. Sometimes it opens at 2.30 pm . The entrance fee is Rs.200 but it includes a guided tour of this UNESCO listed architectural beauty. You are allowed to take pictures. The tour generally starts at 3pm . So if you come early spend time at this museum and then go on guided tour

    The heritage gallery is located on the ground floor of the Western Railway HQ on right side of the main portico. It is generally closed and you need to request the receptionist or the janitor whose office is near the reservation centre for the keys. Inside you will find many interesting railway items from the bygone era including models of coaches, cutlery, padlocks, signalling instruments and old time tables. Photography is allowed and entrance is free.
