The paraphernalia of the erstwhile rulers of the Gaikwad dynasty are kept here. The paintings by Raja Ravi Varma are worth seeing. Another attraction is the miniature steam engine, a toy presented by the king to the kids of the palace.

The museum has a fairly good collection of paintings, including a set by Raja Ravi Verma (oil on canvas and oleographs) and an exclusive section on turbans which is quite informative. The disappointing thing is that the paintings cannot be appreciated due to inadequately designed illumination. This makes the Rs. 80 entry free quite a waste of money.

Keep aside a couple of hours for this Museum to capture the essence of the paintings of Raja Ravi Varma...each a masterpiece to study and enjoy. Apart from a room entirely dedicated to his paintings, there are sculptures from across the world, all given by the royal family of Baroda that at some point of time passed it on to... More
