Prince of Wales Museum Review

Topped with Moorish domes, Mumbai's finest Victorian building and principal museum houses 30,000 artifacts, divided between art, archaeology, and natural history. While the building is stunning, the artifacts, most of which are extremely interesting, are unfortunately shown in a slightly dusty environment, with not great lighting. The picture gallery contains scores of Mughal and Rajput miniature paintings, works by European and contemporary Indian artists, and copies of magnificent cave-temple paintings from Ajanta. The museum was renamed the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, but don't ask for directions to this—no one uses that name.
