Hyderabad Museums

Antique Collections from Qutb Shahi & Asaf Jahi Kingdom

Hyderabad Museums

Visiting museums and monuments are my hobbies. I have visited almost all museums of Hyderabad. But my favorite museums are Salarjung Museum & H.E.H The Nizam's Museum.

During my schooling I use to visit "AP State Archaeology Museum" atleast once in a month as this museum is very close to my school at Nampally.

Previously, apart from "AP State Archaeology Museum" I never went to other Museums in Hyderabad, to be frank I was not aware that Hyderabad has other museums too. But after creating this website I started to explore all museums.

Egyptian mummy in AP State Archaeology Museum, which was brought to Hyderabad by the son-in-law of VI Nizam Mahbub Ali Khan, and donated it to the last Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan.

I believe, still there are many people in Hyderabad who never visited almost all museums, especially "H.E.H The Nizam's Museum at Purani Haveli".

So I recommend you that on your next trip to Hyderabad, explore atleast below mentioned Museums in Hyderabad.

Salar Jung museum represents the largest one-man collection of antiques in the world. The museum was opened to the public in 1951 and the collection was mostly acquired by Mir Yusuf Ali Khan, Prime Minister to the Nizam of Hyderabad. The museum was declared an "Institution of National Importance" by an act of Parliament in 1961.
