Established in 1857, the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad is the oldest Museum
in Mumbai. It is a treasure house of decorative & industrial art
objects. The richly designed interiors of the Museum include the
encaustic Minton tiles, imported for the Museum in the late 19th
century. These patterns, found on the Grand Staircase & the
Mumbai Gallery, are a treat for our visitors and are an
important part of the city's history.
BDL Museum is now on Spotify!
Tune into our curated playlist inspired by the BDL Museum's collection of Ragamala miniature paintings! The Ragamalas in the Museum’s collection are from the Jaipur school of miniatures. Ragamala, meaning 'garland of ragas', is a set of miniature paintings that depict personified ragas of Indian classical music. A raga is a melodic framework in Indian classical music with symbolic associations such as seasons, time, and mood. It is meant to evoke certain emotions among the listeners. Ragas also provide room for improvisation to musicians and singers.
The playlist features some of the most celebrated artists in Indian classical music. It begins with spirited morning ragas, progressing into soulful evening ragas.
Tune into our new playlist dedicated to the city of dreams -
Mumbai. From 'Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan' to 'Gully Boy', the
playlist tries to capture the essence of the city. The playlist
features songs of various musical styles that developed against
the backdrop of the city, ranging from classic Bhendi Bazaar
Gharana that developed in the city in the 1890s to contemporary
Bollywood music. The songs selected for the playlist draw
inspiration from the city and its people
