A Visit To The Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum Is A Must For Every Mumbaikar

Shalvi posted on 31 December

What Makes It Awesome

If you're a resident of Mumbai, then a visit to this museum is a must. If you want to learn about the history of Mumbai, how this island city came into formation, who were its original inhabitants and so much more, then there's no better place than the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad museum. The museum has been restored and many old timers say it looks exactly like how it did years ago {they've even got the exact shade for the walls}. There's so much to see, so many new things to learn, we suggest paying a visit to the museum on a Sunday morning. You can take a tour organised by volunteers, and entry into the museum is just INR 30. The tour will last for almost an hour where they will take you through each and every part of the museum and give you an insight into how the city changed over the years. If you've got kids in your family, we say you definitely take them for a visit here. Personally, I love visiting this place over the weekends and suggest you do too. There's also a zoo next door which isn't very good anymore, but you could always go in there for a walk.

Pro-Tip

There's a lovely museum shop which you should head to after the tour. You can get gorgeous collectibles, clothes and accessories and DIY craft products too {you can make traditional Maharashtrian, Parsi, etc. couples with the DIY sets}. In fact, there's also a cafeteria there so you can grab a quick cuppa and muffin too.
