Right from its conception, the Museum of Solutions has been developed in consultation with its biggest stakeholder at the center - children. Along with them we regularly interact with parents and educators to understand how they envision learning and education to evolve.

Children’s panel

We consult a panel of 20 children, from schools all over Mumbai. These children meet us once a month and provide us with feedback on different aspects of the Museum. We incorporate their feedback in the design and content of the museum. In future, we plan to expand this cohort and test ideas with a wider and more diverse audience.

Executive team

The Museum of Solutions core team comprises a group of passionate individuals coming from premier institutions across the world, from the education and design fields. This team is working towards building the museum by utilizing their diverse skill sets.

The time has come - to secure our children's future by inspiring them to question our present. MuSo is a space of new learning, where abiding values and modern ideas come together, where children discover the joy of arriving at facts and truths, and where they are equipped to seek solutions for a greener and cleaner planet. To paraphrase the poet, William Wordsworth, the child is indeed the father of man. MuSo aims to nurture children and their thoughts so that their decisions and choices create a healthier and happier world tomorrow.

Sangita Jindal

Chairperson, JSW Foundation

I'm convinced that the Museum of Solutions will be a demonstration not of what education is, but of what it should be. A reimagined education. While children's museums exist around the world, MuSo will be the first museum designed to actually enable children to shape the world. A space where children's voices are heard and where their ideas become real solutions. A space where barriers between children do not exist and diverse children work alongside each other, learning that their common humanity is the most important thing they have. This is exciting and revolutionary.
