I thought of doing a quick tour of Gargoti Museum, max 15 minutes. After all how much time is needed to view a few rocks that too in a small private museum! And how wrong was I.... I ended up spending a good one hour looking at each exhibit accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. The ticket price of Rs.100/- includes... More

They told me in Marathi 'Gargoti' means small balls of crystals or stones'. This was my second visit. Established at a silent place. Of a unique type. Excellent collection. One must visit this museum to enhance one's knowledge in stones. Well maintained. Well behaved staff. It is astonished to see the artwork of nature in concealed manner.

Simply spellbounding collection. Amazed to see what lies hidden inside Mother Earth. This privately owned museum is on Nashik-Pune highway. Their collections is both from inside and outside India. One cannot help but feels awed by the beauty of each mineral specimen kept here in their natural form. Also they have some fossils of bones and teeth of dinosaurs, shells... More

This is a mineral museum privately owned and one of its kind in entire India. It has a huge collection of rocks including those found in nearby areas and across the world too. The museum building is two storeyed. Normally we cannot think about the such colorful collection of stones unless we happen to see it.

Whenever we talk about Nashik we primarily refer couple of very famous pilgrimage sites but seldom mention about this dazzling collection of precious mineral stones in their original crystalline form in this two storied build in MIDC area. Just unbelievable that a piece of stone can have such a glow with million years of history capitulated to speak about. The... More

Lots to learn from the kind of materials, crystals, minerals that are formed over a period of more an millions of years.... More

Housed within a 2 storey building, Gargoti offers visitors a rare glimpse into a dazzling collection of precious mineral stones. One could spend an hour learning about the different types minerals in the collection accompanied by a very knowledgeable guide who speaks both Marathi and English and would patiently points out each stone with an interesting narration. The collection is... More

It was the second time when I visited it after 12 yrs. I found it has improved considerably and has added many new valuable exhibits. I recommend, a must watch thing which is an opening to a new world. The guide also explained very well.

A must visit to see the natural crystal collection in the museum. It has a great learning value for young children. Recommend everyone visiting Nashik to go to that place.

An one stop place,where you will get to know about different types of rocks. You would definitely appreciate nature's beauty, if you carefully go through different rock formations kept here. Statues of Lord ganesha, Shiva, Sai Baba and Bharat mata made out of stones are eye catcher. Do visit definitely.
