  • Large parking lot, well maintained, easy access. They have audio guide that you can rent and listen to describing the exhibits. Cameras/photos are allowed but you need to take a separate ticket for that. The exhibits are laid out in several rooms across the large building with 2 floors. There are elevators and ramps for easy access for the physically challenged. The exhibits themselves are interesting with a few noteworthy items not to be missed. The special exhibits are advertised with prayers, so keep a lookout for them.
  • One of the nicest place to visit in Hyderabad. It will remind us the history of the great city -Hyderabad. Inside the museum you can find huge collection of the weapons which were used in the ancient days. The other finest thing in museum is Art gallery and it is awesome. Two headed statue is amazing and we can find here set of things which are belong to other countries. Musical clock is awesome..
  • This is one of the biggest museum of India named on Salar Jung the last king of Hyderabad. This place has biggest collection of guns sword art piece huge collection of products made of ivory that is elephant teeth. Also carpets sofa set of 16th century are present here. Various monuments which have historic connection, gold plated mirror, huge collection of thousands year old scriptures idols of Indian mythological gods. Some unique art piece like one statue has male face in front and female face at back. The main attraction here is the watch that well every hour and has more than 350 pieces fitted in it, the small soldier comes out and then rings the bell. At 12'o clock he rings the bell 12 times which is great to see. If anyone who loves to see the past collection is suggested to visit here
  • It is well maintained with all the amenities. Good arrangement for drinking water and washrooms. It is fully air conditioned, so it can visited at any time of day. Canteen and food court is also there. It has a vast collection of nearly everything. It requires at least 3-4 hours to cover it in one go. If someone want to explore it completely getting maximum out of the visit, at least 1-2 days will do so.
