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 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.

Like most museums in India, it is a maintained as a bunch of artefacts. The stories behind the people who lived in this former palace are so entertaining, simply better curating can significantly expand the experience of the visitor.

Here you can see very rare ancient things made from ivory, copper, gold, silver, wood etc. I went there with my foreigner friend & he likes it very much.

Surely a "must see" whenever you are in Pune. It got all you expect and more of what you wouldn’t expect in a museum. It’s amazing collection will keep you busy for at least an entire day. Interested in Indian history no matter from which angle? Go there!
