The Nizam's Museum Located in the stately Purani Haveli, the palace acquired in the year 1750, by the second Nizam, is now transformed as a museum with a fascinating collection. The Nizam's museum showcases the gifts & mementos presented to the last Nizam on the occasion of Silver Jubilee Celebration in 1937. A 1930 Rolls Royce, Packard & a Mark V Jaguar are among the vintage cars displayed. There is an interesting collection of models made in silver of all the prominent buildings of the city & citations in Urdu about H.E.H Mir Osman Ali Khan, gold burnished wooden throne used for the Silver Jubilee Celebrations, gold tiffin box inlaid with diamonds, gold model of Jubilee Pavilion and a silver filigree elephant with mahout are some of the notable items on display.

Dedicated to the last and seventh Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan, it has a rich compilation of souvenirs, mementos, and models presented on the silver jubilee of Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan's reign.

This extensive complex of mid - 19th - century Neo - Classical buildings was the main accommodation of the sixth Nizam, Mahbub Ali Pasha. A glimpse of his lavish lifestyle can be seen in the eastern wing of the main building, in the Massarat Mahal. This has the Nizam's gigantic wooden wardrobe, a 73 - sq m (786 - sq ft) room with closets on two levels, and a mechanical elevator affording access to the upper tier. Its contents once included 75 identical tweed suits - the Nizam liked the pattern so much that he bought the Scottish factory's entire stock of it. Purani Haveli also houses the Nizam's Museum, which displays china, silver objects d'art, and several fascinating photographs that capture the legandary opulence of the Nizam and his court.

The museum is open between 10.30 am & 05.00 pm on all days except Friday. Salar Jung Museum.
