MAHARAJA FATESINGH MUSEUM:The collection of Maharaja Fatesingh Museum Trust is in the school building situated in the Lukshmi Villas Palace compound, formerly known as the Motibaug School built in 1875 for Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III. Maharaja Pratapsinghrao Gaekwad and later Maharaja Fatesinghrao Gaekwad, the founder of the trust, as well as other members of the royal family including Maharaja Ranjitsinh Gaekwad completed their schooling here. After appropriately redesigning the existing school building to house the art treasures, Dr. H. Goetz, a renowned museum director and an expert art historian, was engaged to arrange the display of this museum. Today the lush Lukshmi Villas gardens add greatly to the quiet and serene atmosphere of the museum. The museum was opened to the public in April, 1961 by Nawab Mehndi Nawaz Jung, the then governor of Gujarat. The museum collection consists of objects d’arts collected by the Gaekwads of Baroda, Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III (1875-1939), the visionary of Baroda city. It is during his reign that Baroda made great strides in all round development and was recognized as one of the foremost and most progressive states of India. This great ruler consulted various renowned artists of Indian subcontinent and Europe to choose art pieces to decorate the various palaces in Baroda and other palaces in India. It is his efforts and interests that inspired Maharaja Fatesinghrao Gaekwad to create this trust and the museum to preserve this great treasure and make it available to the public for their admiration and education.
