  • Historical place....a must watch in Hyderabad.. totally roamed the museum and have seen all the sculpture and tradition with pictures and even some proofs of existence will be available here. first of all we need to take ticket for the photography along with the entry ticket so we can take photos with freedom. Musical clock will be most famous here. And the food is also good here. Washroom facility and everything will be available
  • This museum is really a very nice museum and is one of the biggest museum I suppose also not very much sure. it took me around 3 hours to watch and visit this place since this one is the biggest I have ever seen in my life. This museum contains the antique pieces and items which is really very rare to see. The statues, the weapons, the cloth and specially the rhyming clock is really worth to see. Everyone should go there at least once if you have the time.
