One of the 3 National Museums in India, the Salar Jung Museum is home to the largest one-man collection of antiques in the world. The Museum has a vast collection of furniture, paintings, textiles, ceramics, sculptures, metallic artefacts, carpets, manuscripts, clocks, and carvings. There are ~40 galleries here spread across 3 buildings and 2 floors and even with all of this, it is said that this is just about 1/4th of what the Salar Jung family collected/owned from across the world.Veiled Rebecca, a marble statue, which was created by an Italian sculptor G B Benzoni and brought by Salar Jung I in 1876, on his trip to Italy is an unique masterpiece displayed here. There are only 4 of these across the world, and this one here in Salar Jung museum is different in one minor detail (visit to find out ;-)) than the other 3 which are similar to each other. There are several collections which date way back to the 1st Century also. Another beautiful piece of art is a vintage musical clock. A bearded man in a robe comes out of an enclosure and hits the bell, the hits count signifying the hour of the day.
