The AP State Archeology Museum is Hyderabad’s oldest museum and home to some of the state’s most-prized artifacts that were excavated from the museum’s original site. And while these items certainly offer a glimpse into the ancient times of locals, it’s the Egyptian mummy exhibit and the expansive Buddha gallery that attract most visitors, plus an impressive collection of items from the Kakatiya dynasty. This museum is perfect for families traveling with children and ideal for history buffs looking to learn more about the rich history of this Indian state.
The museum is open daily from 10:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. and closed on Fridays and the second Saturday of each month. Entry is 20Rs per person with an additional fee for those who want to take photos.
