The best museum to visit. Very antique collection of statues and articles. Every person who is interested in historical things must visit. At least reserve 2 to 3 hours. Very well maintained. It's completely Air-conditioned. The good thing is there chairs kept at different chambers to take rest if your legs are feeling pain.
Visited for the second time. There's a lot a explore, especially if you like history, arts, culture, sculpture, etc. This place tells us about the Salar Jung's family tree structure. How was the time at their time. I loved spending four hours of time here. I was double delighted because they allowed photography. One star less due to the cleanliness. Time well spent. Period
Very nice place steeped in historic items. Three levels to see here. Takes a lot of time to see everything here. Bags not allowed inside, free STORAGE for bags is available, you get to keep the keys of the locker too. A separate Rs 50 ticket is there for camera or for PHONE if you are going to use it for photography. If in group, it is advisable to buy just one Rs 50 ticket, n use if for all photography.
It is a majestic and must visited place in Hyderabad. For me, it takes four hours to complete the whole museum. Every part is nice a beautiful. For Indian adult the cost is 20 and for foreigners it is 500. Camera/mobile fee 50. I have also visited UNITED INDIA exhibition which is another memorable part of the tour. Here is one of my photographs...One things, The clock thing is kind of foolish for me... :)
