The place is situated in the heart of the Pune city and houses old relics including vessels, weapons, artefacts, clothing and carvings of the erstwhile era from the 17th century onwards. It lacks space and has many more articles to display. The Mastani Mahal has been reproduced best and gives a glimpse into the Peshwa history.

The collection here depicts the historical artifacts used over centuries in ancient India by Rulers to commoners. the Founder has spent whole life collecting the artifacts and was generous to handover to government. it is one of the biggest attractions for tourists

Must visit for anyone who loves to view and takes active interest in objects of bygone days. There are so many things to see and just feel great about. The Mastani Mahal is simply not to be missed besides of course a number of other attractions.

An awe inducing One man collection of more than 20,000 objects curated with love and patience over 40 years. The 3 storied building that houses the museum can currently display 2500 objects. Mastani mahal, a part of the residence of the mistress of Bajirao Peshwa has been beautifully recreated. The total collection has a myriad variety of objects right from... More

A must visit for history buffs. The Museum is located in very crowded place of Pune City. Parking a hassle. However once inside you will be transported to another world. This Museum is a 3 story builiding with each floor being dedicated to various arts & crafts from eras gone by. My personal favorites are the Wood works on Doors... More
