  • Awesome. Every thing are place well maintained. Have a fabulous day. It will take roughly 4 hours to watch all. But it worthy Timing clock was an awesome experience in this. If you want to get that go between 11-12.At that time it give 11 to 12 strokes That was fabulous. Ancient thing are well maintained and they taking good care of that

  • Excellent collection of art objects from.around the world. But lighting needs to be improved. The lights keep reflecting on the glass panes. Also better cleanliness in some galleries. One can smell dust in some places.

  • It's really good place for tourists to know about the history . Here you can see Hindu, Muslim, Buddhism, Christian culture sculptures. The clock here it's awesome don't forget see this especially during every hour. You need more energy to travel this two floor. Better you carry a bottle of water. And keep all your belongings at the counter beside to ticket issue counter. Ticket is just ₹20{17-2-2018}. Enjoyyyyyyyuu.

  • Wonderful, unique and huge collection of rare/exotic masterpieces of art, handicraft and endless categories of historical items, unmatched perhaps by any other museum in the country. You would literally take days to go over the entire museum and get to know a little bit about everything there. A visit is highly recommended and highly memorable. No wonder this is among the top-most tourist attractions in Hyderabad. There is a large canteen inside to take a break for some fast food, snacks, tea, coffee or juices.

  • Really good place to go with family as well as friends. You will take minimum 5 hours to see the whole museum. Really Useful for students, and every hour you can see the ancient clock there which makes unique sound and the setup is entirely different from other antiques. I loved that place, at last you can go to the museum shop to get Souvenir which will make this trip a memorable one.
