H.H Maharaja Sir Jiwaji Rao Scindia Museum

H.H Maharaja Sir Jiwajirao Scindia Museum opened to the public 12 December 1964 by the then president of India, H.E. Dr. Sarvapally Radhakrishnan. The museum building is a wing of the former Jaivilas Palace, built in 1874 and combines Italian, Corinthian and Tuscan styles.

The museum offers the public a unique view of the palace and focuses on various arts and crafts that grew and reached their zenith under the patronage of the royal family. The museum’s mission is to inspire learning and to encourage and enable students, teachers, researchers and any other interested parties to utilise the collection in order to enhance their academic area, research work or personal interests. Its vision is to make the museum an international nerve centre for the study of art, culture and history related to the Maratha Dynasty. (H.H Maharaja Sir Jiwaji Rao Scindia Museum)
