BMC held a pre-bid meeting for the first phase of the museum. Senior BMC official said “the civic body received a good response at the pre-bid meeting, and tenders will be floated soon. “The renovation phase includes basic civil work, so bidders do not need exclusive expertise to carry out the work. Hence it will be completed on time.”

It will also include musical fountain atop of the lake, and a laser show showcasing old days of Girangaon. The estimated cost of the first phase is around Rs 6.6 crore.
