  • Nice place with best historical artifacts and also it has egyptian mummy and it has different type of idols and paintings it will be nice place to visit. It has peaceful atmosphere with lot of trees surrounding the place and also you can feel relief here and also there is a room for Buddha statues.
  • Telangana State Archeology Museum or Hyderabad Museum is a museum located in Hyderabad, India. It is the oldest museum in Hyderabad state. Archeologist Henry Cousens first explored the site in the beginning of the 19th century, and around 1940 the mound was excavated under the supervision of Nizam of Hyderabad. The excavated items were placed in a museum built on the ancient site. In 1952, the museum's contents were moved to the current build, under the administrative control of Archaeological Survey of India.
  • The State Archaeological Museum is located within the Public Gardens which in itself is lovely and enjoyable for a walk around. Exquisite artefacts / antiques are professionally displayed in a number of well laid out spacious galleries spread over four buildings: my favourites are the Buddhist / Ajanta / Bronze and Brahamanical galleries. Jewellery collections including the gold and silver jewellery inlaid with semi precious stones are not to be missed. The Buddhist gallery includes an urn from a stupa. Gives one a strange feeling of association. One request to the ASI that they start guided tours at appropriate time slots. This will help share the treasures with people far & near. One building is currently under renovation. There are several cannons displayed on the side of the garden path. Just past the main entrance several sculptures / figurines and a chariot stand in an open gallery. A beautiful canopy in black stone from the Kakatiya period adds grace to the ambience. The Ajanta gallery on the upper floor is a very pleasant display. I wish the name of the artist/s had been mentioned. The museum building with its wooden stairs and columns is a piece of fine architecture.
  • It's a good place but not much as salar Jung museum,it's attractive Collection is the mummy which is well preserved and many 1st century BC,Neolithic relics are worth seeing ,Buddhist and Jain statues ,Ajantha art collection and many more.
  • It has a park where you can can sit and eat if you get your own food. The museum is average.
