  • nice places to visit and to see emperor armors and beautiful architecture. the main attraction of this museum is the clock which is in the ground floor. every hour a beard man comes out to ring the bell for respective hour(S). kids will love this museum. i suggest to take kids along with you while visiting.

  • Amazing collection. Plan ahead, might take a whole day if you want to see each exhibit. But located in old Hyderabad, Secunderabad. Best to visit on cab and not bring your own vehicle. Good food options inside the museum, toilets are mostly clean. Good for kids. Try to visit on weekdays to beat the weekend rush.

  • It is one of the biggest and best maintained museums in India. It has all the collections of things which were gifted to Salar Jung ranging from artifacts, clothes, crockery, carpets and everything. It is quite big and it takes time to go about things and if you are specially a history lover than this is the place for you. There is entry fee and fee for camera including mobile phones with camera. Every hour there is a clock in center which clicks and that is a big attraction here. On Fridays it is closed so plan accordingly and it is open from 10-5. There is a canteen also so for those whole plan to stay a long time here no reason to worry.
