Work from a Museum

At the Indian Music Experience Museum by Brigade, there is a new concept called ‘Work From Museum.’  Manasi Prasad, Museum Director, Indian Music Experience Museum by Brigade, says, “We believe the space is ideally suited for an inspiring and creative work environment, because it is part of a beautiful and aesthetically designed museum, with greenery and calmness all around. The spaces where people can work from are the open-air cafe (it has a roof but is open on the sides) and cubicles in the Learning Centre if people need an indoor space. People can take a break to walk around the sound garden or wander through the exhibit galleries, listen to music, view the artworks and musical instruments on display, and recharge their batteries for more productive work. It is ideal for creative people like graphic designers, artists, writers, bloggers, techies and other professionals.” A day pass costs Rs. 250 for 10 am – 6 pm and includes a working space, a table (this may be shared as cafe tables are big), charging point, access to Wifi internet, museum ticket, and free parking. Food and beverage, printer, and stationery are extra.
