This museum is a wonderful historical look at India's past. The displayed artifacts are from the 18th Century on up to the 20th Century. As I am not from India I take this museum visit as a great opportunity to learn about the vast culture and art of India.

Great collection of ancient articles at one place, is a famous tourist attraction in Pune. Located in a narrow lane on bajirao rd., parking might be a issues. Best to travel by locan auto rickshaw. Please check timings before planning to visit.

This is a really good museum for a glimpse of the 'everyday' from 17th and 18th century India. There are also a few pieces from the 13th century. Overall, a nice diversion from the normal city tour and you can't beat the price (100 INR)

The museum is all about a personal collection of artifacts and ancient things from Indian history. Mr. Kelkar has collected lakhs (literally) of things and have donated at the end of his life. The building looks small from outside but once you enter you will realize it's vastness, both in terms of size and collection of artifacts. The details with... More
