“Too Much for One Visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Wonderful artefacts from India's past, from textiles and utensils to dieties and vessels. Take your time, visit more than once, cos there is too much to take in in one go.

This museum on Bajirao Road is a marvel and a must see for tourists. It comprises of rare exhibits and artifacts from all over the country and dates back to the Mughal and the Maratha periods. Paintings, nut crackers, Ganpati's guns, carved palace doors, pottery, number of musical instruments, murtis of Shri Ganesha, Shiva and Parvati with paintings showing scenes from Ramayana and paintings in manuscript are on display. Another attraction is armours made of fish scales and crocodile skin, pistols, long barrelled muskets, daggers, shields, swords and small cannons.
For those who want to experience the rich and tasteful lifestyle of maharajas in the 18th century, there is a big collection including nut-cutters of different shapes and sizes, betel boxes, lime containers and spittoons.
There is a room in the museum which is a recreation of the Mastani Mahal. It has a luxurious setting, colourful paintings and chandeliers, all to give the feel of a palace.
