  • Wow...what a place. One will definitely wonder how can some one make this big personal collection museum (Nizams were richest in the World at some time though). The marble sculpture Veiled Rebecca is a must see along with the over hyped Musical clock (try to be there before 12''O clock for a better view). Food facility is fine but needs and upgrade.
  • One of the must visit places in Hyderabad. It is filled with Nizam's era precious artifacts, sculptures, Scriptures and many other must see items. Veiled Rebecca, one of the most amazing and praised sculptures is on display and can only be seen here. You would be amazed to see the art work and would certainly be mesmerized when you stand in front of the beauty.
  • Had a great experience. Good things 1. Tickets free for under 18 2. Nominal charge for entry and parking. 3. Ancient watch, collection of watches, Rebecca statues 4. Fully air condition Bad things 1. Staff at parking - we were exiting our car wherein the staff asked for charge of Rs. 40 as parking charge. As per the board which we saw in the parking area, the rate for cars were Rs. 20 till 4 hours and then for every extra hour Rs. 5 shall be charged. We were there in d museum for less den 2 hours. We told about d charges as displayed on d board to which they said that the charges have been revised. On further enquiry, they said to pay Rs. 30. We understood their mischief and said that we were leaving and without paying any extra amount over n above rs. 20, they let us go. To conclude, i would request all to be careful during security check wherein they can misuse their checks for their own benefit and during ur final exit regarding charges over n above parking charges as prescribed by govt.
  • Loved the veiled Rebecca statue. Surreal! Great collection of paintings too. Worth a visit for that alone. Huge museum, keep an entire day free for it. Also, don't miss the hourly grandfather clock chime.
  • Awesome Experience. Must visit place to visit in Hyderabad. Takes a complete day to explore the museum. Visit the place preferably early in the morning. Ivory craft is just amazing. The famous clock is also very cute.
