The Nizam’s Museum is situated within Purani Haveli, the erstwhile palace of the Nizams. Purani Haveli or Haveli Khadeem was the residence of the Nizams. It was acquired by Nizam II, Ali Khan Bahadur in 1857 and was renovated between 1803 and 1829 for his son Sikander Jah, Nizam III.

Some of the items exhibited at the Nizam’s Museum are glass inlay paintings of Nizam VII, gold burnished wooden throne used for the silver jubilee celebrations, gold tiffin box decorated with diamonds, gold and diamond studded daggers, a wooden writing box studded with mother of pearl, a model of Jubilee Pavilion made in gold, etc. There is also a collection of models of all landmark buildings of Hyderabad made in silver.

An expensive visit which can be avoided

The musuem is not as big as Salar Jung museum. The entire museum can be covered in 30 minutes.The ticket is steeply priced at Rs:80 per adult (as compared to Salar jung musuem) which I believe is a bit expensive considering there are not many art collections.It is not crowded and you do have guides who charge you Rs:100. It is better to avoid them. Even the art collection is not well maintained especially the garments section worn by the rulers. They could have atleast washed it once in a month.

A good Heritage Museum

The museum consists of the artefacts collected during the rule of Mir Osman Ali Khan, the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad. The museum is located at Purani Haveli. The main attractions are the two tiered wardrobe and the 125 year-old manually operated lift. The souvenirs and mementos presented to the Nizam are also on display.We spent a little more than one hour at the museum.The Telangana Tourism Development Corporation's daily sightseeing package includes a visit to the museum. It is open from 10 am to 5 pm except on Fridays.The entry fee is Rs.80 per person. The museum is not as big as the Salar Jung Museum, but it's worth visiting.
