I have been to many museums but this museum is so well maintained and it has the best collection I guess of artifacts. The information provided is concise and precise. Its definitely worth visiting and I would say even if you are a non history lover you must visit this one it's unlike other boring museums.

I would strongly recommend seeing this even on a short visit to Pune, if you have any interest in Indian cultural and historic artifacts.

Kelkar Museum in the middle of the old city is a remarkable place full of various artifacts painstakingly collected by this remarkable individual/ institution. In recent years its exhibition has greatly improved. pls note there are no specific parking arrangement near the museum and it is better to visit it via autorickshaw or on a moped.

We visited all floors in the museum. Each category is carefully put together and is organized with proper information. Makes for a very informative visit. The museum shop is good too.

This museum is a must see if you are in Poona. This gem is hidden in the old city, near Shanivar Vada. The entrance fee is minimal and the fee for the use of one camera is well worth it. The collection holds beautiful example of handicrafts from woodwork to fabrics, statues, musical instruments, tools and household utensils and pots... More

The place is situated in the heart of the Pune city and houses old relics including vessels, weapons, artefacts, clothing and carvings of the erstwhile era from the 17th century onwards. It lacks space and has many more articles to display. The Mastani Mahal has been reproduced best and gives a glimpse into the Peshwa history.

The collection here depicts the historical artifacts used over centuries in ancient India by Rulers to commoners. the Founder has spent whole life collecting the artifacts and was generous to handover to government. it is one of the biggest attractions for tourists
