Museums are usually tiring especially if you are not too deep into history and culture. This lil' museum in the heart of Mumbai can be enjoyed in 2 hours even with kids. It is very well curated, amazing ceiling and the upkeep of the place is worth mentioning. Also has a museum cafe to for a snack. If you have the energy recommend a walk in the zoo next door not so much for the animals but for a breath of fresh air amidst an amazing collection of trees - few know that the zoo was intended to be a botanical garden

Awesome place to be with kids, even for adults... Too much things to look around, everything being curated very nicely.. Great work of the Curator of the museum... Moreover we went during and exhibition which was going on in Asymmetrical Objects,which was an added thing... The maintenance of the Museum area is also worth mentioning... Then they do arrange for painting workshops and all which I feel is great.....

This place is just before the main entrance of Byculla zoo. The collection of artifacts is good. The miniatures of traditional games was intresting but they could have kept pamphlet in English explaining about the games. The children loved the shadow catching show
