  • 首先很感谢那位捐献出来自己收藏品的先生,让我得意花200rs就看到这个时期的部分印度人民生活的缩影。观赏期间你会惊叹各种曼陀罗的设计,整个过程让你能量满满。原来四大文明古国这么来的。就像我们大中华一样,你只看街头小贩和无良商贩的话,你只看到冰山一角,我觉得想了解一个文化古国这种地方可以帮到我们自己。 
  • it is a stupendous place to see many ar ticles .it is not strictly about maharastra but a commendable collection of one man . i wish it was catalogued better with small writeups on every object there ...  more »
  • A very nice museum to visit. It gives a light on history of a ruler and the valuable items he owned.

  • 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
