The Historical Museum and Research Centre was developed with the assistance and guidance of the Ahmednagar Palika. Established on Maharashtra Day in the year 1960, the Centre initially started with just two rooms and now has transformed into a full blown museum.Personalities like Shri Sardar Babasaheb Mirikar, Shri Munshi Ammid, and Shri N.V. Pathak led the research and assembled a huge number of historic files and artefacts.The Museum currently boasts of astounding 12,000 manuscripts, in excess of 8,000 coins and close to 50,000 historical documents, apart from the numerous other artefacts. A London map of India from 1816 and a 66 m long horoscope are amongst the major attractions in this place.The Museum was recently shifted to Hutatma Chowk, close to the Collector’s Office. It is easily reachable by a taxi or a bus. The museum is open on all days except for Thursdays, from 10 in the morning to 5 in the evening.
