Museum of Art & Photography (MAP)

Kasturba Road, Bengaluru Bengaluru Urban 560001


The Museum of Art & Photography's mission is to democratise art, making it an enjoyable and relevant experience for everyone. MAP hopes to change the general perception of museums in the country and show that they are in fact engaging spaces — of ideas, storytelling, dialogue, and cultural exchange, that will help build a museum-going culture. Ultimately we seek to inspire people to interact with art in ways that encourage humanity, empathy and a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

MAP opened its doors to the public on February 18th, 2023. Divided into five storeys, the museum includes art galleries, an auditorium, a library, a multimedia gallery, a technology centre, a sculpture courtyard, a learning centre, a specialised research and conservation facility, a gift store, a café, a member's lounge and a terrace alfresco restaurant-Cumulus.

MAP is custodian to a growing collection of over 60,000 artworks that take viewers on a comprehensive journey of Indian art and culture. Predominantly from South Asia and dating from the 10th century to the present, the collection includes paintings, sculptures, textiles, photographs and more.
