  • Very informtive museum with a vast collection of sculptures and ornaments belonging to different eras of Indian history. Beautiful ancient statues greet you at the entrance. A lot of artifacts from the maratha period are also present. Only complaint is very bad lighting, especially for photography only reflections from the glass covers can be captured. It is better to not pay extra money for camera permission and instead enjoy with your eyes.

  • very informative place.. so much collection of our history.. must visit place... well organized and well maintained

  • The place shows history of development of the Maharashtrian Culture from utensils to armours. It even has displays of Chinese vases which are absolutely stunning. The main attraction is the 'Mastani Hall' with its beautifully carved wooden ceilings and walls.

  • Really good... Many old things are kept here... If you are history lover... You have to go... Old pune historic things .

  • It has great collection from history of Maharshta and Gujarat basically . They displayed a replica of Mastani Mahal which is interesting
