Surprisingly large collection of exhibits with some descriptions in English. Well maintained and arranged in a logical manner. Entrance fee of 200 INR for foreigners plus an extra 75 INR for a mobile camera. Worthwhile paying the camera fee as some of the exhibits are quite interesting and warrant a photo. This is certainly one of the better attractions in... More

A one man collection preserved well in an old wada. Worth a visit, maybe two. Situated in old byline of Pune you can combine it with a walk through Mandai and Tulsi Baug

Pune being my hometown, I have visited Kelkar museum a zillion times, and every single there just seems to be something or the other I missed out on my previous visit.

A place where you can step back into time and reminiscence about the life of the people so many centuries back. The artefacts are well looked after, preserved and presented in such a way that each tells us a story. A must visit if you're a Puneite or out of Pune.

The meuseum is located in the heart of the city and has an amazing colection of artificats from our history. A must for everyone who is interested in Maharashtra's history. The sujata mastani store ( a thick shake and smootie restruant) offers the most tastiest mastani in the town

Worth visiting. It is a private collection and covers a lot of traditional indian kitchen items, various musical instruments, some of which are no longer extant. After the govt took over the up keep isn't upto standard.
