Camera strictly not allowed. Each floors have different types of artifacts from weapons, jewelry, vessels, carts, instruments, cloths and many more stuffs. One could see the mastani mahal as well. Follow the direction sequentially and you would find all interesting displays

An interesting collection of antiquities and musical instruments that is certainly worth seeing. The building itself is rather dilapidated, especially the top floor, which is common to many Indian museums, but this does not interfere unduly with the viewing experience.

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!
