Founded in 1872, the Bhau Daji Lad Museum has long been the predecessor to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (Prince of Wales Museum). Located in Veermata Jeejamata Udyan (Byculla Zoo), the museum was named after Victoria & Albert, and emerged largely as a result of the initiatives taken by one of Mumbai's revered freedom fighters, Dr. Bhau Daji Lad. The irony behind the renaming notwithstanding, the Bhau Daji Lad Museum echoed with history dating back to the British Raj in India, but had few visitors. Silver and copper ware, ivory models, old photographs, clay models, temples made of pith, interesting agricultural articles and other decorative pieces and figurines, reminiscent of various clans and communities, silently rest in peace. Owing to private enterprise initiatives and the Mumbai chapter of INTACH, the museum saw a face lift in 2007, restoring it to its old glory. It's about time more people walked off the beaten path and took notice of this hidden museum.

Residence of the iconic Mahatma Gandhi between 1917 and 1934, Mani Bhavan is tucked in one of the leafy bylanes around August Kranti Maidan. The house was converted to a museum in 1955 and is now a vast repository of Gandhian literature and philosophy. Tourist leaflets are available in all major European and Asian languages and photography is not permitted. The two storied Mani Bhavan has on display dioramas of the major events in Gandhi's life, a photo essay (stunning is the Second Round Table Conference image, where all eyes are turned to the camera, Gandhi is completely oblivious to it) and copies of letters written by the Mahatma (the note to Hitler is fascinating), exemplifying Gandhi's simplicity and humility. Nothing makes these traits more evident than his well preserved room, equipped with just the bare necessities and the symbolic spinning wheel (Charkha).
