What travellers are saying
- I nearly missed added a review for this as I was looking under the old name of Prince of Wales museum and hadn't realised they'd changed it. No matter, I certainly would recommend visiting here. It is often overlooked but is, I think, a hidden gem, of this vast city.
There are a wide range of different exhibits to browse at your leisure, from ancient temple carvings to textiles to homewares, hunting artefacts and everythng in between. A nice mix of things rather than other museums that can be quite specific. I especially liked the intricately carved weapon handles and hunting flasks and to see them close up. You can take photos as you go, no restrictions.
Can certainly spend a few hours here as you discover further side rooms down little passages and the gardens are also stunningly well kept. Good toilets too!Written 7 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This art gallery is free and showcases the work of contemporary Indian artists. I was lucky enough to meet several of these and spent an interesting hour in conversation with them. Bright, light and spaciou galleries. Outside the gallery other artists also display their work for sale.Written 4 December 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- It is quite an interesting building to look at. The entire area is gated so you are not able to get inside to look around. There are also quite a few large trees around so getting a view of the entire building is kinda hard.Written 8 February 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This clock tower is quite tall and the clock is large and so the time is easy to read. It is decorated with stature of indian figures. College Gothic architecture.Written 3 June 2022
- St. Thomas Cathedral at Horniman Circle is the oldest church in Mumbai built in 1713, yes more than 300 years old and restored again in 1837. Lovely stained glass work at the church with beautiful memorial of officers and dignatories of the British era including Thomas Carr who was the 1st Bishop of Bombay
Interesting fact that I got to know is that the cathedral marks colonial Bombay's point zero, the exact centre of the city. A lovely and peaceful church to visit on an afternoon with historic significanceWritten 20 May 2023
- Since I was in Mumbai 7 years ago the area around Flora Fountain has been re vamped. I seem to remember that the fountain was surrounded by some nice greenery but now it sits unadorned in a pedestrian plaza that also includes Hutatma Chowk.
The fountain gets it's name from the statue of Flora , the Roman Goddess of flowers which sits atop the fountain.
Worthwhile studying closely to appreciate the ornate detail & symbolism.
This is a very busy intersection of South Mumbai so this area provides a little relief & is really quite an iconic spot.
The fountain has been here since the 1860's.
Area around is well maintained & clean.
I do think I miss the greenery that used to surround the fountain - now it seems a little stark.Written 26 March 2023
- The majestic facade of the building gives the area the Royal touch n is photographers choice for Photo Shoots n also during night time lighting adds to the decorWritten 6 November 2019
- The garden is located across the road from the Asiatic Society building. I thought it was weird that there was only one entrance to the garden. It was under construction so all the other gates were closed off they were rebuilding parts of the garden.
There were a few stalls outside the garden entrance and there was a public bathroom just inside the main gate. The garden is well maintained and i really enjoyed walking around it. there were quite a few shaded seating areas as well as exercise areas around it. There is a fountain in the middle but that was currently under construction so it was broken up.
Once it's been remodelled I would probably give it a 5 star but since it was still being redone it was missing some calmness and beauty.Written 16 February 2023
- This synagogue built in the 19th century has only a small conregation today. The building has been restored recently. Inside there is no elevator and a lot of stairs. Photography inside the building is only permitted on payment of fee (about $7). Interesting history of small community that was very involved in commercial and civic life in Mumbai.Written 18 December 2019

- The David Sassoon Library and Reading Room is the oldest library still in use in Mumbai. The library is a very handsome looking Neo-Gothic building. Inside, it looks like an old school reading room with a lot of old world charm, especially with the way the reading desks and books are arranged.
A nice place to visit for a bit of history and old world charm. The condition of the interior is a little sad though. There’s a lot of peeling paint all over the walls and water damage in parts of the ceiling. See it before it all falls apart!Written 30 November 2019
