Adjoining it are the government museum and the industrial and technological museum. Nearby is Lal Bagh, the 250-acre botanical gardens laid out by Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan over 200 years ago. Inside is a magnificent Victorian style glasshouse where flower shows are held twice a year, August and January.
