Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya ( Formerly the Prince of wales Museum of Western India )

Prince Wales Museum entrance
You will get 30 to 40 minutes to visit the museum. If you are an art lover and interested in sculptures, paintings and other art collections then this place is best for you. During this conducted sightseeing tour you will not get much time to spend so you can manage more time if you visit on your own.

Next is lunch point on Marine drive. Standard lunch is available at the canteen (Food cost is not included in the sightseeing package )

After lunch guide will take you through important buildings and parks of south Mumbai. Wilson college , Malabar hills , Tower of silence , Residence of important personality of Indian Industry and film are shown from the bus. Malabar Hills is the most expensive VIP residential area of India.

Next stoppage will be at Mahalaxmi Temple. Here you can visit temple. This spot is skipped on Friday to avoid long Queue. You will get 25 minutes to visit this temple. Note that photography is not allowed inside the temple. Keep your shoes in the private shops outside. You need to walk through gali ( narrow lane ) to reach the entrance of the temple

Next you can see Haji Ali Dargah from the bus and then via racecourse you will reach Nehru science center. Usually there are two places inside where tourist visit. First will be a documentary of 30 minutes duration is show in Odyssey. Inside the circular auditorium screen covers roof also. Next part is museum where different scientific theories and experiments are displayed. This is good for the students and children.

After spending nearly 45 minutes in science city you will proceed towards Juhu beach via Worli sea link. This newly constructed bridge is 5 KM in length.

Juhu Beach

Juhu Beach
Juhu beach is the last point of your Mumbai Darshan sightseeing trip and you will get nearly 45 minutes here. After this your bus will drop you at your respective dropping points.

Note that this full day trip is good for those who have never been to Mumbai and not seen important places of Mumbai. If you have planned to visit Elephanta caves ( not part of this package ) then the ferry journey included in the Mumbai Darshan is not required. Similarly Prince Wales Museum is just 5 minutes walk from Gateway so it can be easily seen while travelling to Gateway.
However this is the best way to cover sightseeing spots of Mumbai by spending one day.
