THE PRINCE OF MUSEUMS This day, 114 years ago, George, Prince of Wales (later King George V) laid the foundation stone for the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India (today the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya), at a site then called the Apollo Crescent. The building was ready in 1914, and served as a military hospital during World War I, before it finally opened as a museum on 10th January, 1922. The Museum is the starting point of our #KhakiBus open-deck heritage ride this Sunday, 17th November, at 7 pm.
