“a must visit place for history lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

this place is a personal collection of Late Mr. Kelkar, which is now a govt property. it amazes to see how passionately he collected the things all over the country for so many years. The place is in multistory bldg and have various sections to visit. lots of information is shared and it requires good amount of time if you want to visit and get information in detail! It is a well maintained place.

“A must visit place in Pune”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Raja Kelkar Museum is must visited place in Pune. You can see lot many old things from coins to jewellery to utensils and many more. Musical instruments are also kept here. If you are a history lover then this is a perfect place to visit. You must spare at least half day to see this museum.

“Passion of the man”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

It sounded boring at the start but the visit was worth. Mr, Kelkar ha s made some real impressive collection there. The collection doesn't have a particular theme. It varies from household stuff, artifacts, statues, musical instruments to guns ans swords. The collection of wooden carving from gujarat is amazing.

Kudos to Kelkarji

“lamps and lamps with Mastani mahal recreated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

It was long awaited visit turned out to be a fulfilling occassion for mind and sight. Kudos to Kelkarji for single handedly creating the collection. The complete Mastani Mahal was dimantled and recreated at the museum, Do visit and enjoy the past culture.

“One man's amazing collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

One man's passion for collecting Indian art is what we see at the Dinkar Kelkar Museum. From ornate doors and windows from all over India, to many items of daily use, to gods and godesses, there is so much here that it will be difficult to do justice to it in one visit. A must see. Could be better curated though.
