The Salar Jung museum is a national treasure and is one of the better maintained museums in the country. A hurried visit might take a few hours but someone who keenly observes the exhibits is bound to take two days.It’s a great place where children don’t need to be engaged with gadgets. I liked revisiting the statues, the musical clock,... More

The visit to Salar Jung museum is a good experience indeed, the highlight was the Mephistopheles and Margherita where a sculpture is shown facing a mirror at an angle so you can view dual personalities. Lots of periodic art especially during the Nizam dynasties, a must visit for evey traveller to Hyderabad.

Great collection and good guidance!!! The only thing they would need to improve upon is good lighting in some of the areas of the museum.

The collection is amazing with artic acts from Europe Far East and India . Sections on art ,sculpture, brass and wood furniture and utensils and a veritable section on Ivory work. Huge collection of jade and semiprecious stone articles. The piece de resistance is the veiled Rebecca, although the musical clock gathers a bigger attraction The museum gets 3000 visitors... More

Couldn't wait to leave this very crowded and poorly maintained concrete round box of a museum The artifacts were so poorly presented that it was shocking and reminded me of the dull museums of the former Soviet bloc countries Anyone who has been to world class museums should not waste a visit here!

If you are a Museum lover, you need minimum a day to finish this vast collection. The veiled Rebecca is amazing.

As most of the people written so much about this, I will not repeat that again. Important tip is to hire guide, otherwise you will be bored. I’d suggest you to hire good guide from Hyderabad for whole day. And ask him to show 3 / 4 places in day. They will charge you around 1000 to 1500, but they... More
