Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum

I finally made it to the Bhau Daji Lad Museum
Thomas Heatherwick (award winning designer,architect,engineer) was in Mumbai to give a talk as part of this years India Design Forum 2013.
It’s really quite beautiful and a hidden treasure of Mumbai. 
Originally bult as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Bombay. It is Mumbai’s oldest museum and the third oldest in the country.

While the space is brilliant,the content on display
 is a little un inspired and looks tired,
the poor lighting dos’nt help either. 

I would definitely go have a look, as the grounds are nice and 
you do get a sense of peace and quiet amidst the bustle of mumbai.Would be nice if they had a good cafe!

I hear they host a lot of great exhibitions through the year, so i’ll definitely be going back for another visit.
