This is the largest collection of cultural/heritage artefacts I've ever seen. It is meant to be the collection started by Dr.Kelkar and apparently the museum only showcases 1/8th of the collection! I just believe the look on his wife's face each time he brought back more of these!

The collection by one family is a great value addition for the viewers. One can see the cultural changes those have been happenings from the ages in India.Many items,when seen makes you either to wonder,or to recollect those you have seen/enjoyed when you were young.

Home to a large array of items, from puppets to entrance doors, dating from the 16th to the 19th centuries, from different parts of India, such as Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra etc. The collection, unlike many other Indian ones, is well presented and clean, neat etc. There could however be a bit more background.

Must visit place for all who come to pune city. It is located on Bajirao road and is part of pune darshan bus itinerary as well. Tourists can take pictures by paying additional charges at ticket counter. One can take more than half day to see whole museum...
