A peep into the lifestyle of the eras gone by. The exhibits include exquisite kitchen utensils, lamps, textiles, toys, musical instruments, writing implements, etc. It is located in old Pune near the shopping areas. This excellent museum houses the one-man collection of Dr. Kelkar and has thousands of artifacts of everyday use.

The collection of so many thousand items of antique everyday traditional art is not an easy task.The cost involved should be very high. The time and patience of Dr Raja Dinkar is even valuable, and yet,he unselfishly donated to the Indian Government. I salute to him. Edward CHAN from Hong Kong

Amazing!, how a person can have such a great collectables. Excellent display of collectables. Certain items are worth seeing which are of 16th and 17th Century. The museum though on a very narrow road but a must visit place.
