Post restoration, a new curatorial strategy was evolved for the display to enable a better understanding of the collection. The display cases had to be reorganised and the collection represented in light of this new research. Detailed planning for each case involved understanding the storyline being presented and optimising its visual character. The Founders' Gallery showcases the story of the extraordinary men who dedicated their lives to establish this Museum for the city of Mumbai and its people. Portraits of these great men are exhibited in the Founders' Gallery as a tribute. They include George Buist, Juggonath Sunkersett, Dr. Bhau Daji Lad, Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy and George Birdwood.
