Colouring Sheets

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.
