Mumbai’s Art and Culture Scene: A Bus Rental Tour of Galleries and Museums

If you had to name one Indian city which truly reflects the spirit of diversity, then it has to be Mumbai. Its ethnically-diverse community has uplifted the art and cultural scene over decades. Today, Mumbai boasts several galleries and museums that have become major tourist attractions.

If you are travelling in a group, you can book a bus on rent Mumbai for sightseeing to these places. Here is a curated list for you:

Dr Bhau Dahi Lad Musueum

The oldest museum (151 years!) in Mumbai is one of the finest specimens of Victorian architecture. You can tour the museum to appreciate decorative arts, dioramas and models of Mumbai’s origins, founders’ portraits, 19th-century paintings, etc.

Mani Bhavan

A tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, Mani Bhavan is a museum, library and research centre. It is at this place that Gandhiji spent 17 years of his life and initiated the Satyagraha and Swadeshi movements. 

Nehru Centre

Nehru Centre has a planetarium, cultural centre, library and art gallery. It also has a renowned 14-gallery exhibition called Discovery of India which traces our country’s journey from the period of Indus Valley civilization to freedom from the Britishers.
