The place is WOW!! It is a very well maintained place. It has artifacts from 17th century onwards, not very old ones. Very few are pre 17th century. But they are good. Majorly it showcases everyday objects used by people. It is a must visit place in Pune.

The place is situated of the busy Bajirao Road in the heart of the city. This place is a must visit for people who love to read about history. Please make sure you spend atleast 2-3 hours in exploring the museum.

For someone on their first trip to India, having read snipits about various things, it was quite an experience. Lots of things that someone in the past had been interested in and had taken the trouble to collect and to research, presented in such a way that it kept your interest up. It could have been a stuffy museum, but... More

A tribute to one individual's lifelong quest for collecting artifacts of historical value, this museum is a must see for anybody visiting Pune. The museum is organized chronologically, and shows a lot more about the history of Maharashtra, its neighbouring states and India than you can get by reading books. It is a bit difficult to reach if you are... More

A very nice museum in the heart of Pune. The collection is very impressive and as I was too understand only part of it is actually on display. Items get a bit repetitive and display could do with a good revamp but otherwise a must see in Pune.

Nice and well preserved collection of artifacts dated from ancient times and from all over India as well as world. The kids also got lot of information regarding the war amunition, cooking and pooja methods and vessels, musical instruments, clothes etc used in the earlier centuries apart from enjoying the display. The museum is divided in various sections in the... More

An excellent museum to view the art and culture of Maharashtra and Gujarat. Museum needs more footfalls and your support to keep it going. Recommend a visit to anyone coming to Pune.
