Has an eclectic and well selected collection of modern art by continuously changing artists.

Entrance being free, you can't really not visit the gallery.

“Only average.”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

There's absolutely nothing unique about this art gallery.
It's mostly modern Indian stuff, which is not in any way interesting nor that much different from modern art in other cultures.
I was looking for something unique here, and thus I was disappointed.

“Indian Modern Art What”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Had to come here for a glimpse of modern Indian art. I did not know what to expect but I was genuinely surprised how developed and skillful the presented works were. Besides paintings there are interesting art installations using materials such as metal/wood. Check it out!

“Jehangir Art Gallery, Kalaghoda, Mumbai”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

Jehangir Art Gallery: Visit this gallery for a taste of modern Indian painting and sculpture, and when you tire of walking around, settle into the comfort of Cafe Samovar with a steaming cup of tea. This is Mumbais most prestigious art gallery, which exhibits artwork by well-known Indian artists. There is also the plaza outside, where artists sell their paintings and also take on commissions for work. Samovar is the popular cafe housed in the complex, and Indias oldest licensed antique dealers, Natesans, can be visited here.Timings: Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm.
