An Amazing collection of the everyday tools and gadgets, things that were onced used and most of them never were used again. Here we can see how life was, and how it is now... how the consevation techniques are real important... i really liked this one

The museum is located in very beautiful building. Unfortunately, the building is neglected. Visitors can still find some details they catch their eyes.

Regarding the collection, it is very interested and quite rich. I have seen few other museums with similar items but this one is probably the best one.

Few small things reduce my grade.

1. The museum is the old style one - very passive. Nothing but the long line of art pieces. Not too good description, not too good explanation, very old style of presentation.

2. Walk direction recommendation is unclear and I could not find the thought of the path. Up, down, skip the room to be back again later.

3. This is not specific for that particular museum - ticket price for foreigner is 250 rupees, not the same for Indian. Why?

Just the fact that it started as one man's passion makes it interesting. unlike other museum where you only see royal stuff this place has stuff that is commonplace yet unique, it tells you stories of times that you don't see otherwise.

An exceptional museum dedicated to a lifetime of collecting the everyday and exceptional artifacts of life from Maharashtra. The collection is exceptional and well displayed. Our family of 4 (with two teens), spent over two hours here and did not bored. The collection provides a wonderful glimpse of a life and culture of the past that is rapidly vanishing from India. Highly recommended.

The museum is tucked into a back street in a busy part of town, and can be difficult to find. Consult Google maps and find a knowledgeable driver. We managed to get there by rickshaw but carry a map and expect your driver to have to stop and ask for directions.
