  • 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 posters, so keep a lookout for them.
  • Three museum is very well-maintained. You will see how beautiful the building is and how clean it is from outside. The gardens outside the main building make the area look so beautiful. The museum shows all the coins from that period as well as the Swords of that time. It also has a area dedicated for the cars of that time. Totally visit this if you are in Hyderabad.

  • The museum is very organized, clean and well-maintained. Lighting system and air conditioning system in some rooms is a bit weak but the overall collection of the museum is pretty widespread! The mega attraction is the musical clock in the ground floor domed hall! For audio aided experience, we need to pay extra 60 bucks for the machine. They are charging extra 50 bucks for camera/mobile phone to click pics inside during buying tickets. I loved the experience. Overall, it was a balanced trip!
  • It's nice place to spend your day admiring the beauty of the museum. The place is clean and we'll maintained. Ticket charges for the museum are Rs20 per person( free for children - need to show proof of below 18) and for taking pictures you need to get a separate photography ticket that costs Rs50. The Rebecca statue is the best statue that I have seen.( Keep an eye out for it). Enjoyed spending the day there. :)
