See artifacts from 19th back to ~13th centuries. Regional selections including bronzes, handicrafts, woven and beaded items. A good start to understanding the region.

Besides having craftsmanship from the earlier ages of the 1600, all the parts seem to be carefully collected and preserved within their capabilities. Really enjoyed this opportunity to find out more about indian culture and all it's history. Definitely a MUST in Pune!

It is a treat for history lovers. The artifacts are well preserved. the location is a little hard to find, but once you enter it takes time to view the whole place. The highlight of the place is the mock Mastani Mahal built. it is a beautiful place!

Raja dinkar meusem is quite hidden from main pune and is actually at the centre of pune. It has numerous things to show in meusem and mastani mahal is quite famous among the people. A must visit for lovers of history and art.
