  • You can avoid this place. It has nothing much to be seen. There is no jewellary of the nizam for display. 
  • We went with our kids and our parents. Found the place to be incredibly crowded. We came out in a hurry as we were unable to push through and view the exhibits. 
  • Salarjung museum definitely is an art enthusiast's paradise! This is a huge place and plan for at least half a day or a full day to really see and enjoy the artifacts here and preferably start early i...  read more »
  • Loved the museum, it lot bigger than I expected, so many artifacts. Especially loved the ancient war equipments, great collection. I will recommend it to all. Make sure you go there early, so that time will be suffice for all the departments
  • This is one of finest museum in India Collection of canes,european and indian paintings,Japanese and Chinese culture,miniature paintings,musical clock, mind blowing sculpture..and many more You need atleast 6 hours minimum to view all the collection. Cons- you will get tired as there are no seating arrangements or such (i know museums doesn't have those but this museum needs that) If you are in Hyderabad then this is the first place to go Better than chaarminaar
  • Salarjung Museum is really an amzing place. One must visit it atleast once and that too by taking out atleast 3 leisure hours so that you can visit each section nicely and Those who love to know historical intersting facts, should spend hours for checking out each Antique. Miseum has cafeteria n toilets inside. So comfertable visit. Closes at 5 pm so go accordingly.
  • Great collection.. Descriptions of artifacts is especially good. Loved " The veiled Rebecca " sculpture
  • One of the Best & well maintained Museums of entire India. It has started now a unique service, a Digital Handheld Palmtop Guide It will guide you in each and every hall you visit Renting charges: Rs. 60 Refundable security deposit: Rs. 2000 Any Identity Proof issued by Government Some of the museum's possessions like Musical Clock, Veiled Rebecca, Twin Sculpture are really worth watching. Any History & early life enthusiasts, this is a place for you Completing the entire museum takes a very considerable time, so plan your schedule accordingly
