Situated on the Ghole Road, Shivaji Nagar in Pune, Mahatma Phule Museum was originally the residence of the Maratha social activist and a prominent promoter of women’s rights- Mahatma Jyotiba Phule. However, in 1890, the residence was transformed into a museum and was named Lord Ray Museum. An important tourist attraction in town, the museum boasts of artefacts and displays dating back to the bygone era in the fields of industrial, agricultural, handicrafts, textiles, geology, stone carvings, marble statues, arms, armory, seals etc. However, the highlight of the museum is the taxidermy of animals including elephants, sea fish etc. In addition to that, the museum also houses a library that boasts of a very rare and unique collection of books.
