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.

Those of you who wish to see the cultural treasures of India must make it a point to visit this less known museum. I happened to go there not to see the museum but to visit the handicrafts exhibition being held on the premises. But was I glad I came there! It was a pleasure going through the well maintained museum with very interestingly displayed artifacts. All the arts and crafts of India through centuries are on show on the ground floor. The first floor has figurines showcasing Indian costumes, religions, armies, lifestyles and much more in a very attractive way. The place is specially meaningful for school kids for learning ancient Indian culture and traditions.

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 an hour for a detailed tour. Although we didn't see but audio guide signs were there which can be used for an informed visit. Access wise also it is quite centrally located with many Best Buses stopping at the museum / zoo gate.

To my fellow Indians, who have only ever visited mumbai to shop, have dinner and a token visit to the 'Gateway of India' ...... just so you don't feel bad with all the retail therapy. Please please visit this Museum and make sure you take the tour. It shows the wonderful arts and culture of india across the ages...... if for no other reason than to marvel at the beautiful building itself and at modern india that is respectful of the past and spending money restoring these old and precious sites ......

This museum has a large number of archaeological finds, maps, old photographs of Mumbai, clay models, silver and copper ware and costumes. Good insight for kids to know Mumbai with its vintage history. Ticket charge for a single adult and kid was Rs.15/- Situated in Byculla East (within the Jijamata or Rani Baug zoo premises), at the moment the main gate is closed due to some repairs please use the back gate.
