    Discovery of Mahatma in the true spirit and hence experiencing his presence by visiting the historical place having many belongings and books and the environment itself. As a museum it was properly maintained and of course it is a must visit of every Indian.

    Earlier known as "Prince of Wales Museum", building itself is a heritage building.
    Good and unique artefacts on display and very informative particularly the Natural History section.
    A proper visit can consume 2-3 hours and the museum closes at 5.00 PM, so folks can plan accordingly.

    Recommended for all age groups.

    People are allowed to click photos for which they have to buy an additional ticket and they will give you a wrist band to display.

    BNHS, Hornbill House, near Kala Ghoda, is dedicated to research in nature and natural history. It is a storehouse of knowledge on subjects related to nature. It organises tours for enthusiasts to visit places of interest in india and abroad. It is possible to become its member for a nominal membership fee, and enjoy its activities.

    This is a unique museum which displays centuries old history of money. It offers a nice learning experience and a must visit for people who are interested in some monetary history.

    For art lovers it is a nice place.The museum has four sections. Two galleries on the ground floor and two on top. First one spot the portrait of Pilaji Jadhavrao, the brave Maratha. In the other spot, there are oil lamps and jewellery which were used to adorn domestic animals in ancient period.There is a huge collection of cooking vessel and lanterns placed at the front yard. The left gallery features a collection of ancient board games such as Ludo, and decorative storage boxes made of brass, copper, iron and wood. It also display variety of dhotis, turbans and walking sticks.
    On the first floor of the gallery we can see bullock carts and a doli used by king and queen .

    I can’t quite understand why this museum only has 4 reviews. A fabulous building set in beautiful grounds the museum houses a very interesting collection. Not to great to overwhelm but more than enough to interest. It’s well laid out with good signage. Originally build to commemorate the visit of the Price of Wales, later George V, in 1905. A rather splendid statue of him stands serenely in front of the building that one bore his title. Latterly it’s been renamed, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya museum. I guess this is part of a history cleansing exercise. Rather ironic for a museum.

    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
