It was wonderful to visit this museum after a gap of several years, this time with kids. Pleasantly surprised to notice that it is preserved in an even better manner, thanks to support from Tatas and Birla, among others. Over 20,000 artefacts collected over decades by a single individual, as a tribute to his young son's memory are on display... More

This museum is a collection of artifacts of one family. The museum holds collections from the South India, Maharashtra and Gujarat mainly. It's a very good place to learn the culture of Southern and West India.

Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum located at Natu Baug in Pune is a must for a visitor. It is a huge collection of arts and artifacts by a single individual, Dr. Kelkar. The entire collection is maintained at this museum in the name of his son Mr.Raja. The collections are worth seeing and antics showing the culture and belief of India,... More

From north to south of India and from West to the Eastern part of India there are objects from all over. Loved it. Also there was a replica of Mastani Mahal which was well taken care of. Over all good experience.

A rather interesting museum that has a good collection of ethnic clothes and oil lamps. The oil lamps collection was worth the visit.

We might have given it a miss had not our host suggested that we visit it since it is the largest private collection. Being antique lovers, this place thrilled us.
