The heritage museum is located in the main city itself. It contains artistic displays of miniature models, and actual archaeological excavations focused on showing the region's history.

The museum ranges from showing the engravings on rocks at Edakkal caves and the Tovari Rock Shelter. Inside is a room containing soil samples from across the state, showing the various types of soils available for farming. Further inside, there is a big hall that showcases the tribal life. These include the various instruments used for farming, the various caskets used for catching fish, etc. There is also a real-life-sized version of the plow kept inside the hall. Further, there are storage containers made of wicker to show how grains and other items are stored in tribal villages.

Post that on the lower floor and across the showcases near the staircase display the various sculptures and carvings that have been excavated. Each structure also has a small description of what the same is and what period or century it belongs to. There are also showcases displaying the various types of jewellery being worn and the instruments that might be used for self security of hunting.

Thus, overall, the museum is a great place that showcases the entire details of Kerela's tribal communities as well as the rich history of the region. This place is especially important to be visited if there are families with school-going kids.

I really enjoyed this museum because it has some unique features and many of the displays are dated. There are stone carvings of 'writer with styles and book' and even a 'suicide' - things I haven't seen in India before! The info is interesting too, like noting some 'Hero Stones' commemorate even people who caught cattle theives! They also have displays of 15 types of soil in Wayanad.

The Wayanad Heritage Museum or the Ambalavayal Heritage Museum is situated at Ambalavayal. We visited the Museum after our trip to the Edakkal Caves.
The museum is supposed to be one of the best maintained museums in Kerala and houses a rich collection of artefacts. It bears testimony to the fact that there had been an advanced civilisation which existed in the mountains of Wayanad earlier.
The exhibits collected are preserved in four viewing galleries namely Veerasmruthi, Gothrasmruthi , Devasmruthi and Jeevanasmruthi. Each exhibit is beautifully labelled and displayed under the right light. There is also a gallery of the various soil types of Wayanad.
Overall a MUST VISIT place for anyone going to Wayanad.

It is a small museum with few exhibits of locally excavated sculptures, soil samples and items used by the tribals etc. Nothing much one has not seen in most other museums. Can give it a skip.

This museum has limited collection of artefacts, which are arranged nicely. More information can be provided about each artifacts. Ticket prices are reasonable and the whole collection can be seen in about 30 minutes. You can visit this place if you have to spend time before lunch or if it is on the way. Kids may not enjoy much.

This place is centrally located in Ambalavayal town and easliy approachable. Heritage museum is well kept and maintained, and there is no official car parking, but you have ample space for parking on the street. This looks like an old building converted into an Heritage Museum, and has few articles of yesteryears from the Kerala heartland.
This place is very small to anyone's imagination for a Museum, and has an entry ticket of Rs30/- per adult and Rs.20/- for kids.
This museum can be covered in just 15 minutes.
