Fodor's Review

A great place to see the works of legendary Indian artists M. F. Hussein and F. N. Souza, this imposing, classical-looking circular building has interiors that bring to mind a shrunk-down version of New York's Guggenheim Museum. Built in 1911 by Gateway of India architect George Wittet, it was once the Sir Cowasji Jehangir Public Hall, and the venue for the concerts of violinist Yehudi Menuhin and the rallies of Mahatma Gandhi—the hall still has the acoustics to match. Modern Indian art is displayed in an uncrowded, easy manner on four floors. It's not as spectacular as the Prince of Wales Museum across the street, but it's quiet, and worth a visit, especially if you're an art lover. On the top floor is Atul Dodiya's interesting interpretation of Bill and Chelsea Clinton's visit to India, hung alongside a portrait of Vladmir Putin on his visit.
