Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya Reviews
Excelente museo con muy buena exhibición de piezas antiguas de la India. El edifico es sumamente interesante también. more »Excellent museum with very good display of ancient Indian pieces. The building is extremely interesting too.
一番印象に残ったのは一階の仏教、ジャイナ教、ヒンズー教の石像のエリア。それぞれ特徴があって興味深かったです。建物と庭もすばらしい。ただ、テキスタイルコーナーをのぞいてはエアコンはないので、かなり館内は蒸し暑かったです。暑さ対策必須です。内部の写真は不可でした。 more »The most memorable areas were the buddhist, Jain and Hindu stone statues on the first floor. Each had its own characteristics and was interesting. The building and the garden are also wonderful. However, there was no air conditioning except the textile corner, so it was quite hot and humid inside the building. Heat measures are mandatory. The photograph of the inside was not possible.
Great place if you love history. Well maintained. The children's museum is a good addition. Had been planning to visit it for long. Kiddo enjoyed the books, toys and small activities there. There is a place where kids can get coins pressed, which seemed to be a hit with most young visitors being really happy that they get to use the machine to make the coins.
This museum has loads of offerings on display. It's quite very historic and antique along with the monument itself. You will have to reserve your whole day if you want to explore it fully. I visited this place in just ₹10 back in 2006 but just then entry charges were skyrocketed to ₹65 in 2013 and who knows what are they charging now?
