This is a very interesting and very traditional (British-style) museum. Lots of ancient artefacts and objets d'arts to be seen over several floors.

formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India, is one of the premier art and history museum in India. Situated on the southern tip of Mumbai on the 'Crescent Site', the Museum building is a fine example of the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture.

I visited on a Saturday morning. It was a bit crowded, and according to Google, Saturdays are the most busiest here.

How to reach- I took a local till CST station, it is walkable from there, took around 18 20 mins for 1.8 km. You can also take a taxi from CST.

Tickets - ₹85 for Adults, ₹50 for phone camera, ₹100 for DSLR camera. You can also get discount if you are a student and carry your icard.

Food n shopping - One restaurant is inside the building which serves fastfood like samosa, uttappa, poha upma. Other restaurant is near the ticket counter beside the shop, it has more variety and good food. Prices are decent.
The shop sells items like postcards, magnets, keychains, bags, jewellery, and other handicrafts.

Museum - It has 3 floors overall, and a very interesting ans varied collection. There are different halls like Natural history, weapons, Chinese art, Japanese art, Textile, Paintings, Mughal history, sculptures, crockery.
If you wait to go through details for each item, it would surely take more than half a day. And it is enjoyable if you have the time. You should visit here at least once, along with the kids.

Drinking water and washroom facilities are available inside the museum. Audio guides are available at the counter inside the museum.

Somewhat old museum. Not bad by any means but if you have been or plan on going to the Delhi museum you can save the 500 rupees. The building and grounds are gorgeous but the exhibits are not extensive and in particular the natural history wing is showing it's age.

This is the former Prince of Wales Museum. It reminded me of museums that I grew up with through the 70's with a quite random and eclectic mix of artwork, stuffed animals, pottery and weapons.
However its a beautiful building and the gardens are lovely
