This sprawling museum, in a fanciful 1920 building constructed by the seventh nizam as a playhouse for one of his daughters, hosts a collection of important archaeological finds as well as an exhibit on the region's Buddhist history, with relics of the Buddha himself. There's also an interesting decorative-arts gallery, where you can learn about Bidriware inlaid metalwork and kalamkari textile painting, plus a bronze sculpture gallery and a 4500-year-old Egyptian mummy
