Salar Jung Museum, Hyderabad Reviews

  • Large parking lot, well maintained, easy access. They have audio guide that you can rent and listen to describing the exhibits. Cameras/photos are allowed but you need to take a separate ticket for that. The exhibits are laid out in several rooms across the large building with 2 floors. There are elevators and ramps for easy access for the physically challenged. The exhibits themselves are interesting with a few noteworthy items not to be missed. The special exhibits are advertised with posters, so keep a lookout for them.

  • Amazing and bewilderingly vast collection of a single man, curated to form a museum. Easily one of the most famous landmarks of the city, perfect for a family outing. Would recommend you to bring your own food if you plan to spend a whole day as the cafeteria is not up to the mark. The books at the museum store are also worth their salt. The library attached to the library is one of the most valuable collections in the country, a great source for scholars, historians, architects and even fashion designers.

  • Best museum I visited, probably the best in India. Takes around 4-5 hours too see whole museum. Each and every thing is well maintained. Ivory teeth sculptures well one the best and Veiled Rebeeca is statue which makes this place more famous and attractive. Ticket charges are minimal(20 rupees) and 50 rupees for camera charges. A must place to visit in Hyderabad

  • It's actually beautiful museum, for people who have passion for antiques and historical things. You are going to find so many things, ivory detailed carvings, black stone statues, red stone and many more, if you are preparing for civil services or u have curiosity and love for art and architecture, u should take a day or at least two hours. There is one Antique Watch known for Its uniqueness, where the Durban comes out strikes the bells and Goes inside. Ticket is ₹20 and for photography, additional +₹50.

  • One of the nicest place to visit in Hyderabad. It will remind us the history of the great city -Hyderabad. Inside the museum you can find huge collection of the weapons which were used in the ancient days. The other finest thing in museum is Art gallery and it is awesome. Two headed statue is amazing and we can find here set of things which are belong to other countries. Musical clock is awesome..
