The Nizam’s Museum

The Nizam's Museum Almost every tourist who visits Hyderabad makes it a point to visit the Salar Jung museum, or the Telangana State Museum. However, not many go to another less known, but definitely not the least, museum in Hyderabad: the Nizam’s Museum. The reason for this is simple; since the tourism development corporation of Telangana has not included this museum until recently in their itinerary for conducted tours, most tourists are not even aware of its existence. It is a shame, too, as the Nizam’s Museum offers a glimpse of the treasures and life of the last Nizam of Hyderabad. Find out more.

AP State Museum

AP State Museum Located at Hyderabad’s Public Garden, the AP State Museum offers a vibrant and fresh view of the culture and art of Telangana. It is also the state’s oldest museum and one of its finest. It is the culmination of a ruler and his state’s passion and steadfast desire to preserve the rich cultural heritage of his governed state; the result is a building that has become one of Hyderabad’s frequent tourist stops.

National History Museum
