Very beautiful and mind-blowing collection of antiques. Really liked it. Place is not too crowded so it's very convenient to check around and learn about it. Very necessary for kids of this generation.

This is a very interesting heritage museum of Kerala. There over 5000 pieces of antiques, period collectables and temple artifacts collected over 40 years .There are 3 floors , first is Malabar , second is Central Kerala, Kochi and third floor is Travancore . There is a entrance fee & a camera fee , which is fair . It will take U minimum two hours to go through . It is more adult oriented . They have tried to organize the exhibits , there is no audio commentary. There some pieces with a short write up . I found the ladies present quite helpful. I would recommend this visit , it was an afternoon well spent . Cheers Prem
