(Film Division Complex, Peddar Road, Mumbai)
I recently visited the National Museum of Indian Cinema as my core interest lies in understanding the aspects of storytelling. Must tell you it's that one worthy place you must visit; whether you are a keen professional in the field of storytelling or not.
The place is simply perfect and has an impressive amount of knowledge to share. Well organised, calm, composed and immense creative is all it talks about.
I'm very fond of using the public transport system when travelling to different places. I believe they allow you to explore in a much broader way than the private ones. So I planned my trip to the museum using the public transport systems.
The museum can be reached from Churchgate station using a taxi or a bus. It hardly takes 10-15 minutes. You can also reach the museum from Grant Road which usually is more beneficial in terms of money and time. It takes around 5 to 10 minutes to reach the exact spot.
In case you choose to travel in a private vehicle, you will have enough space to make your parking too. The National Museum of Indian Cinema is operational from Tuesday to Sunday between 11 am to 6 pm. The museum remains shut on Mondays and Public Holidays.
Once you enter the premises you get well scanned and then are directed towards the ticket counter. The ticket for the museum is reasonably affordable. Once you receive your tickets you are then directed to the Gulshan Mahal. The entire museum falls under two parts:-
The New Museum Building
The environment and the structure of the museum are well maintained. It is designed using beautiful flowers and trees, making it all-natural and serene. You have well-equipped washrooms and drinking water services which makes it the most convincing spot to explore.
The museum is all designed with a detailed and impressive share of information that walks you through all the essential aspects of Indian Cinema. From movies to music, you will experience the blend of all. It is truly a fruitful spot for anyone and everyone trying to contribute to the entertainment industry in India or globally. You can also experience film screening sessions every day from 4 pm to 5 pm.
The museum was inaugurated on 19th January 2019 by our very own honourable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Damodardas Modi. It truly is worth visiting. Do visit and explore it your way.
Keep Travelling! Keep Exploring!
