Salar Jung Museum
Situated on the south western banks of the Musi River and in the Afzalgunj Region, this is the 3rd largest museum of the country. This is also the largest museum with one man collections. There are 38 galleries with over 500000 exhibits here which were earlier housed in a private museum which was then inaugrated by the Prime Minister Jawaharlak Nehru. The present Museum we see was opened in the year 1968. Mir Yousuf Ali Khan Salar Jung III was the able Prime Minister of the 7th Sultan of Hyderabad and is known to have spent almost all his income and 35 years of his life in collectiong the unique pieces which are still conserved here from all over the world. He was extremely passionate about his hobby and the museum is also named after him. The collections remained in the Deodi Palace even after his death before these were showed to the public. The most prized possessions are the statue of Veiled Rebecca and Marguerite and Mephistopheles.
Sudha Cars Museum
Located near the Nehru Zoological Park, it is unique in the whole world. Built by a local man and made successful with his talent and passion, this is the only hand- made car museum you will ever come across. The theme of this museum is vintage and creative cars and you will thus find cars in all shapes, szes and designs starting from that of a cricket bat to something even more wacky. The incredible talent of Mr. Sudha should be applauded hugely and the museum be made even more popular. This is presently one of the most visited places in the city.
