Located just opposite to the Gurusthan, Dixit Wada museum houses personal belongings of Sai Baba and is one of the most visited places in Shirdi. The museum was set up by Kakasaheb Dixit in 1911 on the auspicious occasion of Ram Navami. Kakasaheb Dixit was the owner of the museum and an ardent devotee of Baba. After establishing the museum, he resided inside a small room on the first floor and the rest of the Wada (house) was given for the use of devotees. The author of Sai Sadchartita, Shri Hemadpant also stayed in Dixit Wada whenever he visited Shirdi.
The collection includes robes, pipes, footwear, gramophone records and cooking utensils used by Baba. There is also a grinding machine in stone which displays Baba’s philosophy that Dharma and Bhakti come together for salvation.
