Salar Jung Museum, Hyderabad Reviews - Write a Review
Great place, take your time to browse through the treasures. It is Well maintained and air conditioned. We recommend you hire a guide or take an audio guide from the museum. The highlight of our visit was the Constable, picture uploaded with this review. Other art is nice as well. Antique weaponry is interesting. The antique furniture display could be much better.
Getting 5 stars because the museum has Veiled Rebecca. What a master piece of art! I literally became a statue myself observing the beauty of the sculpture. Be careful with audio guide - what they charge for first three hours X amount and for extension they triple the rate! Be careful to return and re-issue audio guide after 3 hours. What is looting unsuspected people? Best example.
This is the best place i am visited in Hyderabad to know more about our Culture and more about unknown things in India. It is easy to identify easily and everyone can visit with friends and family members. Here every thing we can see how our kings are ruled, how they are lived, how they troops are protected and all them we can see there. Who wants to know more about please visit.
Huge collection of historical items. One time visit is must if you visit Hyderabad. Collection consists of items ranging from ancient India to modern India. Almost everything is showcased from weapons to cutlery. Visit it certainly if you are a fan of history. Museum focuses entirely on history of India rather than Salar Jung. Tickets are very cheap so worries. Do enjoy your visit
To understand any museum , u need a guided tour, please do take one and understand the place and it's history.... This place is loaded with historical artifacts and collection by an Individual effort..... Do visit if Hyderabad is ur destination.... This place have lots of old artifact but you may get bored and confused as the place is not well guided. You can see the children's gallery. The place is well located. Bargain with auto which you take from there. long waiting Que. during holiday season, but its a must visit place if you like historical place. go ahead with your family for a memorable outing.
