Join us for the first ever 'Day at the Museum' at the iconic Salar Jung Museum - the single largest one man collection of artifacts in the world, for a fun filled day of art appreciation and learning!


A Day of Appreciation & Learning

Experience a dedicated day of recognising and celebrating the wonders of art within the museum galleries. Immerse yourself in the captivating history and intricate beauty of these exceptional art forms at the Salar Jung Museum galleries.


The day is divided into two distinct segments: Forenoon and Afternoon. The Forenoon session begins with a detailed talk session that delves into the intricacies of the carefully selected artifacts from the museum. Following the talk, participants will have the opportunity to personally observe these valuable items, allowing for a deeper understanding of their significance to be cultivated.

The afternoon session begins after lunch with an engaging discussion on Dakhni and Urdu Poetry in the Deccan, drawing inspiration from manuscripts housed in the Salar Jung Museum libraries. This is followed by interactive workshops where participants can gain insights into the profound concept of Sacred Geometry patterns, which play a prominent role in Deccani architecture.

Regardless of whether you are an avid art enthusiast, a history aficionado, or simply curious about the world of manuscript and miniature painting, "Day at the Museum" is an unmissable event. Discover the wealth of cultural heritage and artistic excellence delicately maintained within these enthralling galleries.
