Centrally located, the Mumbai institution of the Prince of Wales Museum (officially the Chhatrapati Shivaji Museum but a lot of the older, less politically correct names tend to still be in use here) was a great place to start exploring India. There was a street art fair going on behind the museum as well, so it was a great time all around.
I don’t envy the curator who has to put together a collection that speaks for the entire history of the Indian subcontinent, but the museum does a nice job of presenting a wide assortment of art and sculpture from across the country. Some of the best pieces are actually located outdoors, which is a nice touch.
The street fair featured lots of different styles as well, including more than one homage to old-school Bollywood.
A lot of booths were selling souvenirs for charity. Have a heart for stray dogs!
Mumbai is quite the sprawl, but luckily a lot of the noteworthy sites are grouped fairly close together towards the southern end of the city. The Prince of Wales/Chhatrapati Shivaji Museum was a definite highlight for me, along with the fair.
