  • The lost Museum at the heart of the historic center of Pune is a little hard to find but worth it. There are an incredible number of objects of daily life, from the guitar-foot (so, if) to musical instruments. Also note the beautiful wooden doors. Some of these almost unchanged objects found in the daily life of the Indians of today.

  • Excellent Collection of Marathi, Gujrati and Rajasthani Heritage and Culture, Clothes and Ornaments, Utensils, Armory, Ivory art, China and Clay art and especially Puppet Collections. It has separate setup of Mastani Mahal. It also has a wooden model of Shaniwar Wada.
  • One of the worst place to visit in Pune. It does not qualify to be a museum.The collection of goods are only a century old, such things you could probably have in your store rooms Its waste of money and time to go there. Only thing I liked is Mastani Mhal which is next to Museum. WORST EXPERIENCE
  • If you have interest in history, heritage, culture and archaeology then this is the place to visit. The place sits in a vast area serving to show cultural heritage of the Marathas, Rajasthan, Gujarat etc. It houses various utensils, doors, windows, ivory art, armors, and puppets. It has a wooden model of Shaniwar Wada for showcase.
  • More hundred tourist places in pune pune is great place to cover all tourist places and want to punetours one hire cab or get punetours package from Kesarinandan Travels
  • Very good place to visit with kids.. it encompasses around 20000 historical things. Mastani mahal is key thing yo visit
