The Ganesha's Sinddor kavach... More

Amazing museum. We walked to this place from Dagdushet Halwai Ganesh temple through the crowded market. Plan for 2 hours at least. Was surprised that only the older people who we asked about its location could tell us about its location.

The museum is too good, those who likes the history and old arms, clothes, instruments of ancient times, its worth visiting for those who study history.

This is truly an attraction that you should not miss if you are visiting Pune. Now as tourist attractions go there is really nothing that Pune has to offer. I mean if you are a tourist, its very unlikely that you will come to Pune to see anything. But having said that, in case you are passing by, or if... More

Its got stuff dating back to the 13th Century(i know cause i counted) and its pretty educational (i hope). But my reason for visit was the same as every tourist`s, new city new places.. If you view everything on display it takes roughly about an hr.

It's kinda overpriced for foreigners with tickets being charged at 200 /-, they charge extra for allowing you to photograph the works inside, which is a real shame. Overall it was a very educational experience inspite of there being no guides to explain anything at all.

I always love museums and i been here couple of times. Its peaceful place located in the heart of Pune city. It has collection of various articles and old traditional art work from all over India. My personal favorites are section of musical instruments and household things. Its place to visit if you like museums.
