Get ready to travel back in time without a time machine! The Chhatrapati Shivaji Museum of Indian History in Pune is a perfect destination for those who want to get lost in history for a day.

Founded by Francois Gautier, this museum is a treasure trove of exhibits from various dynasties, rulers and groups. From Aurangzeb to Maharana Pratap and from the Aryan Invasion theory to Tibetan history, there’s so much to explore here.

But wait, there’s more! The museum also has a hall to screen documentaries and movies based on Indian history, and you can even buy books to take home. Plus, you can join a guided tour to get the full experience.

It’s not all serious business, though – the museum is housed on a beautiful, serene property that’s a treat to visit.

And if you’re a history buff, you’ll appreciate how every wall is beautifully adorned with pictures that will take you down the memory lane.

But let’s be real, if you’re not a history buff, this museum might not be your cup of chai – it’s a bit out of the way, and there’s no bus service to get there. But if you’re in the area, it’s definitely worth a visit.

So, what are you waiting for? Hop in a cab or share a rickshaw to reach this fascinating museum in Lohegaon. It’s only 20 minutes from the airport and 55 minutes from the Pune railway station. Get ready to travel back in time!
