  • Worth Visiting It. It is one of the best maintained historical museum of India. It took at least 1 hour to complete roaming inside the museum . The best part is at about 5 pm, police will call everybody in the ground floor which is hall like with sitting arrangements. There are projectors everyone thinks that something will be shown. But funniest part is that it is the way of police to collect peoples from every corner of the museum. They gave a thank you speech and told everyone to leave outside carefully. Extra money is taken for cameras and only one canteen is available beside museum. This place is ideal for historians and also for time pass.

  • Very nice museum. Quite a few interesting artifacts are displayed. Gets quite crowded. Limited four wheeler parking is available. There are place to eat in the building itself. Multiple rest rooms also available. Entry ticket is nominal. It is free for kids. When we visited the place, voice guides were not available.

  • One of the biggest and best museums in India! Need atleast 3 hours to spend here. Cheap tickets. It displays Scriptures, handicrafts, paintings, antiques of various kings etc.. Don't miss the clock ( preferably at 12 noon ) which is the centre if attraction of the museum. Another marvellous one is the two faced wooden statue. Clear explanations displayed everywhere. Highly informative. Don't miss Salar Jung museum if you're to Hyderabad

  • Great museum with interesting galleries of the remains of one family's collection. In some galleries, the lighting needs to be improved. It's easy to pass a whole day here.

  • well maintained museum .. couple of things to see are the 'toy clock' where the person hits the bell as per the number of hours. I loved the sculpture of the woman covered in the curtain. For one statue, you can see a man from front and as a woman in his back in the mirror.
