Very cheap ticket. But, nothing much to see with kids. Not well maintained. Does not feel/look like palace. It has stairs so, difficult for elderly people. Palace is on first floor.

Depending on your interest in Murals and how much u know about Ramayana & Krishna. Amazing murals. Also nice history of Cochin's development. Minimum 1 hour and max 2 or more
