Easily the best museum in Hyderabad. What a fantastic collection! The only drawback is the sub-standard canteen where there aren't enough places to sit. If I could give it 4.5/5 I would but not 5/5. Parking is easy, and there are enough places to sit in the museum.
One of the best antique museum I have visited till date. if you are planning to visit this place, be ready to spend minimum of 5 to 6 hours to cover the entire museum. And If you are in hurry then must visit are 1. Western Block (First Floor) 2. Eastern Block (First Floor) 3. Egyptian Antique 4. Clock Show (11 am or 12 PM show is the worth to watch) Has good parking area. Museum has a so-so food court at ground floor.
The collection is amazing.. from clocks to walking sticks.. from paintings to ivory carvings.. marble to wooden structures.. This place has it all.. try reach in the first half to have a proper view of the famous mechanical clock.. the veiled Veronica is another most see piece.. The double sided wooden statue can't be missed.. plan atleast 3-4 hours to complete it properly.. guide service advised to enjoy it properly..
