About MAP

Set to open physically in 2022, MAP’s state-of-the-art facility is situated in the heart of the city of Bengaluru, India. The museum will include art galleries, an auditorium, an art and research library, an education centre, a specialised research and conservation facility, as well as a terrace cafe.

As South India’s first major private art museum, The Museum of Art & Photography aims to take art and culture to the heart of the community!

MAP will be a space for ideas and conversations that are initiated through its collection. We believe in making South Asian art and culture accessible to diverse audiences, and curate a museum-going experience that encourages people to experience art and heritage in new ways!

Our mission is to democratise art, making it an enjoyable and relevant experience for everyone.
