Amazing, but sadly deserted
Sep 2019 • Family
The Museum has variety of subjects covered, such as rare collections to models, stuffed animals.
It has amazing, you would never see on internet charts precise to the scale models of factories, small insects, guns, swords, clay pots, metal pots and many more things.
They charge INR 10 per adult. children have free entry. Still this place has almost no visitors even on weekends. This is a sad part. Hope this review helps it get noticed.

Great collection of historical artefacts, taxidermy, etc

Its a great place to take youngster along. The old building encompasses so much of history! A little more description on the display items would be great. Such places should be developed as tourist attractions. It has so much to offer; we are just letting it all fade away

This very old museum has a lot of artifacts. Industrial, biological and historical pieces are good to see. Wonderful models of Taj Mahal, golden temple and many more. Taxidermy collection should be checked.

I went to Mahatma Phule Museum. Mahatma Phule Museum is an important tourist attraction in Pune. Named after Mahatma Jyotirao Phule, a social activist, this museum carries historical items related to industrial, agriculutral, handicrafts and other items. It is great place to go.

Good location near shivajinagar. You can find some interesting things here like stuffed animals of Tiger, African Lion . The museum also display design of dams , reservoirs , oil refinery process industries blueprints , photos of forts and the descripitons. There is a small village plan that was put up on display which is quite cool to watch.

Can be maintained much better

The Mahatma Phule Museum has nothing much to do with the social reformer Mahatma Phule. In fact, it was the Lord Reay Industrial Museum earlier, which is a better indicator of what it contains.

The museum hosts a rich repository of various objects such as brassware, lacquerware, woodwork, bidriware etc. One can see stuffed animal figures, the most eye-catching of which are those of the African Lion, Leopard and the skin of a crocodile. There are also models of various industrial plants and processes, as well as the usual stuff one finds in a museum such as old weapons, paintings etc.

However, this museum is not maintained and neither is the display organized. It resembles a haphazard collection of items put together, which fails to engage the visitors. While entry is cheap at Rs. 10, it is not really a place which someone must visit unless they have time to spare. Even then, a trip across this museum should take not more than 30 minutes.

You will find some interesting things here like stuffed animals of Tiger, Lion which will definitely send some chills in you. The rest of the museum is all about the dams , reservoirs , oil refinery machines blueprints ,old photos of forts and the descripitons. There is a small village plan that was put up on a cardboard surrounded by glass. It is quite cool to watch it.
There is small room with all the newspapers and you will find it quite simple and neat.
Overall, this place has some good things which will definitely make you feel good.

Mahatma Phule Museum
Feb 2016 • Family
This Museum is named after social reformer Jyotiba Phule and situated at Ghole road ,a walkable distance from bal gandharva theater.
The Museum building is very well maintained from outside but inside the artefacts were very poorly maintained.Very unique and interesting artefacts are
at display but the museum is poorly maintained and even the lights were switched off of Pavillions.This might be due to on-going maintenance.
One howitzer canon is on display outside the museum which is in good shape and you should click a photo in front of that.
The entry to this museum is free and you require 30-40 min to see this museum.
