The Museum is a Grade I Heritage Building of the city. It has been awarded first place for Heritage Building Maintenance by the Indian Heritage Society
The Key Gallery, located in the central foyer, showcases a representative collection from the various sections of the Museum such as Archaeology, Indian Miniature Paintings, Indian Decorative Arts and the Chinese and Japanese collection. It thus gives an overview of the Museum’s rich collection.
Our aim at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya is to create awareness of our rich ancient heritage among the people. Therefore, the museum, in addition to the artefacts that are showcased in the permanent galleries, regularly houses temporary exhibitions and lectures on a multitude of topics and also hosts special events.
