Hg2 : The Hedonist

Bombay Museum

Located in Fort, by coming here you’ll be slap bang in the middle of Mumbai’s cultural centre, so it makes sense to integrate a visit here for an artsy afternoon. Set in a Grade I Heritage Building, it was designed by George Wittet (who also designed the Gateway to India) in the classic Indo-Saracenic style and is the city’s premier museum.

Some of the collection cases are a little dusty and worse for wear, but the figurines and miniature paintings make it worth the trip. There’s also a natural history section, weaponry display and a collection of European paintings that are not worth visiting. The free audio guide, which is available in several languages, is useful and will help you get more out of your visit here.
