The Salar Jung Museum is for those who are looking to understand Indian history. It has got mind blowing artifacts from the past. Please keep aside half a day to view this museum at leisure.

A display of artifacts from around the world collected by one family in India! An amazing look at art through history. Very cheap entrance fee and you can spend a full day easily. Many parts lack air conditioning, so I wouldn't recommend going during the hot season in Hyderabad.

Amazing to go thru the life and times of the Nizams. Interesting by far are the different rooms dedicated to different periods and rulers.

A complete mish mash of stuff that must have been wonderful to visit when it was in its original museum home. Now in a new building it has little charm - the occasional standout item such as the veiled Rebecca are swamped in a tidal wave of other objects.
