Intersting Artefacts. Unkempt Museum.
Feb 2021
This museum houses artefacts, weapons, paintings, coins from the 17th century Maharashtra, the time during which the great emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ruled Maharaashtra.

This musuem does not have any personal weapon of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as such, but has weapons and coins of those times.

Sadly, the musuem is in a very pathetic state. But do not be surprised, the Maharashtra government and the local authorites never cared for all this. I pity the large-hearted man who donated all these artefacts worth millions of dollars for free to the government, only to be displayed like this.

Yet, I will say do visit this museum. It is still worth it.

In the memory of the Great King
Nov 2019
The Museum is located off a main road in Aurangabad city and is easily accessible. The museum has a very small parking space within the compound. There is a nominal entrance fee to visit the museum. Photography is restricted inside the Museum. The museum displays items, artifacts and photos associated primarily with Chhatrapati Shivaji as well as with the Marathas. It is a small museum, with the center courtyard.
The Museum must have been built with good intentions, however, currently it is not in great condition, mainly the exhibits, which appears to have deteriorated over a period of time.
We were drawn to the museum because of its name, hoping to learn little more about the Great King, but we were not much impressed with what was on display.

Must visit
Dec 2019
This place is not given its rightful place and hardly anyone goes. The auto guy could not even recollect which place this is when we wanted to go and we used google maps to guide him.

The place is not maintained at all, but the collection of coins which take you through the history of the Deccan is marvelous. Its a rare thing to see. Unfortunately badly maintained but this is a place which must find its place in your itinerary

Very cheap entry fee 5/- perhead quite worth visiting the museum once but you can't photograph the artifacts kept inside the halls(weapons, satvahana artifacts, lamps, metal utensils etc).

nice museum
Mar 2019 • Friends
It is one of the main tourist attractions located near Nehru Bal Udyan. War weapons and other antique items of the former rulers of Maratha Empire are put here for public viewing. Main attractions of the museum are the 500-year-old war suit, a 400-yr old Paithani Sari and the hand-written copy of Quran by Aurangzeb.

Nice museum but Need improvement

I went to the Chhatrapati Shivaji Museum. Some of the oldest and the rarest artifacts can be found here like 500 year old armour, an equally old traditional Paithani Saree and a copy of the Holy Quran that was written by Aurangzeb. The coin collection is outstanding.
