“Must visit this museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

This a true representation of history of Mumbai.
The displays are very pleasing and it gives a glimpse at the life
in and around Mumbai. They have miniature dolls of all castes and religions in India. It can be seen in 2 hours. The price is right even for the foreigners. It is located at the entrance of the Zoo. Once during a year there is a plants and garden exibition
in front of the museum. The museum is recently renovated. I take all my friends and visitors to this museum.

“Small but stunning...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Bhau Daji Lad Museum is a small museum in comparison to what the size of a museum should be, but the information that you gather from this place is out of the world. This Museum is dedicated to the history of Mumbai and narrates a seamless story of Bombay, its past, about the people and everything. Weekly seminars are a big attraction of this place about topics that are generally over looked by the commoners... The museum looks awesome...

“Old musuem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

I was trying to visit British structures in Bombay, and this was one of those. It appears very few people come here. I was quiet impressed with the collections, though there were not much to look out for.

“A great revived museum.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Located in the close proximity of the Zoo at Byculla, this was a neglected monument for long. The renovation & restoration work has been great.
It is named after, if I am not mistaken, the first Indian doctor to pass out from the Grant Medical college & J.J. group of hospitals.
Definiely worth a visit to have a look at the colonial architecture of the building.
