The Health Museum in Hyderabad was set up in the year 1948. Initially located in Chikkadpally, it later moved to Trophy Hall, Public Garden (Jawahar Bal Bhavan) in 1952 and finally to its present location in the Ajanta Pavilion at Public Garden. Managed by the State Health, Medical and Family Welfare Department, the museum is divided into two sections. The first section is dedicated to issues on nutrition and the history of various diseases like tuberculosis, leprosy and malaria. The displays illustrate matters related to anatomy and immunity and also have wooden placards devoted to healthcare. The second section of the museum is focused on childbirth and motherhood. The museum also conducts film screenings on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
