Its a very interesting museum and well organised. There were some rooms where better lighting would have been appreciated. Some rooms were not in a great condition.

This place has lot of information about history of Hyderabad. How they use to live in the ancient times , there cloths, life style, weapons etc. In every 1 hour there is one show about one clock made more then 100+ year ago. That clock is quite amazing in its technology according to the time frame if we see.

This place is a must visit when in Hyderabad. A rare view into India's history and artifacts that are kept from that era. Be prepared to keep a lot of water with you and plan on spending an entire day to visit the museum in its entirety.
