Check Out Mumbai's Most Instagram And Snapchat-Friendly Art Galleries
Art galleries are really fun to explore – they showcase quirky artwork, you spend a beautiful day indoors and often get to meet the artists as well. Galleries are usually not very phone and camera-friendly, but we found a few that are cool with it. Check out the galleries in Mumbai that you can Instagram your way through and where you can take photos with your phones to get those #CultureGoals.
#LBBTip: We all love posting stuff on social media but do be sensitive about the art space you’re in, and of the artist’s sensibilities.

One of our favourites in SoBo, this museum is gorgeous, with its beautiful ceiling, galleries to stroll in and the fact that it has been here for decades. A must-visit for anyone who wants immerse themselves into the history of Mumbai. You can easily spend a day and still not completely cover all of the museum but we do have a guide that’ll come handy.
