In 2007, I visited Siddhagiri Gramjivan Wax Museum with my family on a holiday trip. We mainly know about wax museums of London and Paris but when you will visit Siddhagiri Gramjivan Wax Museum, you will be surprised to witness about 300 statues with presentation of 80 scenes which depicts ancient village life. It is the only museum in the world to depict a complete and developed village model which is spread over 7 acres. The main objective of the project is to refresh and showcase to the current generation of India the history of a self sufficient village in India before the invasions of Mughals in Maharashtra. Few interesting scenes in the museum include goldsmith at work, farmers ploughing his farm using bullocks, shepherd with his herd of sheep, women cooking food for the family, villagers fetching water from the public well and many other such village scenes.


It will take 3 to 4 hours to explore entire museum. The overall conclusion which I can evaluate after visiting this museum is that all things depicted of flourished village culture in the museum communicates beauty, joy and oneness in nature. The beautiful surrounding and overall scenic beauty is what makes this place pleasant. But please note that photography or video shooting inside the museum is strictly prohibited.
