Victoria & Albert Museum is the oldest museum in Mumbai built in 1872. Now renamed as Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, this is the place where you could find great many archaeological relics, maps and photographs that relate directly to Mumbai's history. The museum is a rich repository of some the most valuable articles relating to Industrial and Agricultural interest.

Housed in the verdant Victoria gardens, which is now named as the Rani Jijamata Udyan (Rani Bagh), Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum owes its name to Dr. Bhau Daji Lad who devoted his life to this museum. The museum, which earlier gave an old and eerie look, is now turning fresh and bright, thanks to the sustained endeavors of Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage, Mumbai (INTACH).

Among the cherished collections worth a peek are clay models, costumes, finely wrought silver and copper ware etc. The museum has some of the rare photographs of old Bombay and evidences from colonial past of India. You could plan a visit to the museum on any day from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm, except on important public holidays when it is closed.
