About History Museum

The perfect destination to explore antiques and understand the sculpture evolution of the country, the History Museum in Aurangabad, being a division of history wing of the university, offers an opportunity to history students to visualize sculpture evolution in the country. If you have a knack for learning the history of a place, this is the right place for you! The museum holds artifacts relating to Satavadhana dynasty and original paintings of Rajput, Mughal, Maratha, and British era. The figurines and excavations from 7th to the 12th century are displayed at the museum. The enormous gatherings of coins, stones, arms, and textiles made by Dr. SB Deshmukh add to the glory of the museum. It constitutes two halls, exhibited with over 125 carvings, detailing about Marathwada’s lifestyle. Viewing the precious collection of international items is rather exciting. It is interesting to find artifacts from China and Japan including China clay, gold embroidery, and ornaments on display here. The museum also displays several religious manuscripts in Arabic and Persian of the 18th century.
