The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya opened its doors to the public on 10 January 1922, as the Prince of Wales Museum. This commemorative volume showcases some of the unique artistic and heritage treasures in its vast collection, as the Museum celebrates its centenary. Beginning with the history and establishment of the Museum, the author describes the architectural features of this landmark heritage building in Mumbai. A journey through its galleries, with beautiful images and descriptions of the paintings, sculptures, artworks, textiles, bronzes, everyday objects and modern art in India from the JJ School of Art, provides a detailed exposition of the various collections in this repository of the nation's cultural heritage.
