Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS), formerly the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India, is one of India’s leading art and history museums. Located in southern Mumbai, the museum occupies a Grade I Heritage Building and was awarded the 2010 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Award for the preservation of its beautiful Indo-Saracenic architecture. Numbering some 60,000 objects, the collection’s particular strength is its ancient Indian art and Indian miniature paintings. The CSMVS also boasts a prodigious collection of other far eastern art, including Tibetan and Nepalese decorative objects; Chinese and Japanese porcelain, ivory, and embroidery and ancient Buddhist artefacts excavated from the Mirpurkhas site by renowned archaeologist Henry Cousens.
