Pune, apart from its neighbouring hill stations and year-round pleasant weather now also has a lot to offer when it comes to art. With the burgeoning art spaces, cafeterias and studios, Pune’s cultural life pulsates with unparalleled energy and enthusiasm. Its vibrant street art started by the PMC and Pune Biennale Foundation lends the city a voice of its own, heightening its architectural grandeur and beauty.
The museum houses a wide collection of weaponry from the Maratha Empire wars, rare books, paintings, microfilms, palm-leaf works, antique coins and more, alongside the private historical Jamkhindi collection. It started with the personal collection of the late Rao Bahadur Parasnis of Satara who was deeply interested in Maratha history.
