When Bombay House, the iconic Tata group headquarters in Mumbai, reopened a month ago after extensive restoration work, all eyes were set on the modern new look that the building sported internally. One of the highlights of Bombay House 2.0 is the Tata Experience Centre, a digital museum. It is aimed at giving visitors an immersive experience into the world of Tata using digital technologies for effective storytelling.

Visitors get an insight into the history of the century-old group that has given India some towering business personalities.
