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.
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... :)
Great museum with variety of collection from all over the globe. I specially liked the old statues of Hindu gods that dates back to Gupta period .The European art gallery is also worth watching with splendid paintings on display. They have huge collection of items made from ivory crafted beautifully by artisan.
Best Place to Visit in Hyderabad.So Many Ancient things to see. Well Maintained and Clean. Japanese and Chinese Art are worth to watch in Museum. Clock is one of the Famous Item in Museum. It will take you around 2-3 hours to see the whole museum. Art present in this Museum are worth to watch.
If you are interested in Hyderabad's History. This is the place to go for. The museum is quite big and it will take the whole day if you don't want to miss anything. The Musical Clock is the center of attraction along with a statue. Audion guides are available but it is better if you hire a local guide. It will cost around 400 for local guide.
