This is a big museum and we took around 3.5 to 4 hours to see he collections placed inside this museum not sure if we had seen all the collection. If you know the history you will enjoy it but if don't know the history, then you will get tired. It displays the history of Hyderabad Nawab and Hyderabad.

The collections on display inside the museum is really gud, i found it tiresome, because it was never ending. Its really a big museum. The collection from Nizam's belongings is really worth.
