The Fatehsinhrao museum, which was established in 1961, is located in the palace grounds. It houses a collection of royal paintings and other art treasures and is open to the public and well worth a visit.
The Museum is especially noted for works by European Renaissance artists like Raphael, Titian, Murillo and Rembrandt, and an outstanding collection of the portraiture of Raja Ravi Verma, a 19th century portraitist. Another interesting section houses Chinese and Japanese porcelain artefacts, while two rooms on the ground floor are treasure troves of the Roccoco period in art.
The fully functional toy train that the prince Ranjitsinh Gaekwad received on his fifth birthday from his father Pratapsinhrao Gaekwad, can now be found in the Fatehsinhrao Museum.
