About Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum

Right in the heart of the Pune city, the Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum was established in 1962 by Baba Dinkar Kelkar in remembrance of his son. The museum, later in 1975, was donated to the Maharashtra Government. Collection of artifacts in the museum is vast, numbering close to 20,000. The unique thing about it is that all this is collected by a single individual from all around the world. The collections include a wide variety of things starting from musical instruments, woodwork, sculptures, lamps, tambool artifacts, household articles, paintings and ivory show pieces. One of the major attractions of the museum is the Mastani Mahal, which is an endeavor to reflect the romantic and heroic life of the Bajirao Peshwa and his beloved Mastani. A ‘must see’ for the tourists, the museum on Bajirao Road will thrill all those who admire old collections and are interested in history. From Mughal period and the reign of the great Maratha’s, some of the exhibits are centuries old.
