Museums are very much relevant in our society as they are the torchbearers of our history and heritage and it is at museums that one gets to understand the diverse habits of ancestors and royal dynasties which had once ruled this region. It is important to preserve and support the museums because they connect our past with our future.
Had it not been for museums, then it would have been almost impossible to gauge the value of our past and understand what has been done over a series of not just decades, but centuries and millennia. Therefore, the Department of Heritage & Museums, Telangana is fully geared up to welcome groups and tourists and make them a partner in promoting the importance of museums and conserve the priceless antiquities of the region, which are gathered and displayed after painstaking efforts.
