We are working selflessly to create a museum that preserves the cultural and spiritual knowledge for ALL Indians regardless of faith, ethnicity or geographic location. This is a noble, but a very difficult project, as there is no tradition of private museums in India. Private or government endowments are very difficult to obtain.
Thus,we need YOUR help. This museum is built on a shoestring budget and bills keep pouring in, while donations are very scant. When you donate to the Chattrapati Shivaji museum, you are joining us in the mission to preserve our true history. Your donations go directly towards the expenses shown below. By helping the study of India’s past you are directly contributing to its future.
