WITH SO MANY MEMORIALS to the Mughal culture that conquered this part of India long ago, you might enjoy this glimpse into the world of the Hindu defenders’ champion, Shivaji, the great Maratha ruler. Weapons of war, a handwritten Quran, rare coins, even a 400-year-old Paithani saree are among the artifacts housed in six exhibition halls. All halls may not be open.

Open 10:30 AM–6 PM daily, about 40 minutes away by car.
