A delight for art lovers, this museum homes one of the richest repositories of antiques and art objects. Built in the early 20th century by the 7th Nizam, the building of the museum is a fine example of art in itself and so is the alluring garden surrounding the building. Originally built tobe the doll house for the daughters of Nizam, the structure now consists a wide range of collectible from the Buddhist, Brahamnical, Jain, Bronze, Numismatics gallery. Also, a contemporary art museum neighbours to this one.
The main attraction of the museum is an Egyptian Mummy that was incidentally brought to the museum by the son-in-law of VI Nizam Mahbub Ali Khan, who bought it for just 1000 pounds. In addition there is a copy of the Holy Quran that bears the seal of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan.
