Department of History, Department of Anthropology and Department of Geology have set up two new museums on the premises of Savitribai Phule Pune University which were inaugurated by Dr Nitin Karmalkar, Vice-Chancellor of the University on April 13. These museums can be visited during the Heritage Walk which has resumed from last month in SPPU.

During the heritage walk, people will be able to witness weapons, rare books, coins and documents of history along with the expanded gallery of the museum which is created by the Department of Anthropology.

The department has set up a demonstration of the struggle waged by the tribals in India against the British monarchy.

Birsa Munda, a symbol of tribal rebellion, as well as Raghoji Bhangre, tribal revolutionary and information boards of some tribal rebellions have been displayed in the new gallery.

The gallery will continue to remain open to the public to raise awareness about the historical interpretation of these tools by collecting them and examining their physicians.
SPPU has been running Heritage Darshan activities and museums since 2018.

This year marks the 151st anniversary of the historic main building of the university. The university has also preserved the heritage of rare paintings of Mahadji Shinde, Nana Fadnavis, and Sawai Madhavrao (Madhavrao II) which were painted by James Wells in the 18th century.
