The Museum offers a rich selection of learning and outreach programmes focused on providing stimulating, participatory experiences that respond to different age, interest and language groups, and recognize a diversity of backgrounds. These experiences are aimed at encouraging critical engagement with Mumbai’s history, and artistic and cultural developments.

On occasion of International Literacy Day, we're presenting a free story telling session of ‘Kottavi Raja and His Sleepy Kingdom’ at the Museum!
Kottavi Raja had trouble sleeping. Only at night. During the day, when his ministers discussed complex problems, he’d find himself nodding of f. He asked everyone for remedies. Nothing seemed to work. Until... Travel to Kottavi Raja’s land through this story telling session and see what happened next! 'One Day, One Story' is an annual storytelling campaign launched by Pratham Books and is organised around International Literacy Day. The programme, now in its sixth year, aims to take stories to as many places as they can and introduce the joy of reading to several children.
