It’s not a big site. The exhibits are fine, many are replicas or remodeling. But the biggest complain being that there are not many descriptions to explain about the exhibits or the background. Most of the objects are simply tagged with the most generic labelling.

The collection of artifacts that remind of the grandeur, valor of the Maratha kingdom is simply stupendous. The clothing, furnishings of an era long gone is a very satisfying experience. You should keep at least half a day for really enjoying the displays.

The footfall is not as much as it should be... But not crowed either. This is one mans' personal collection...so it's not like a fancy AC museum... but more like a walk through someones house.
