Entrance fees is 200 rupees and 100 to take pictures. This comes with a guide. Kerala Silk sarees are sold here for a very cheap price 2000 and 2150 rupees. You get to see/experience Keralas history and culture.

The most enormous selection of Kerala artifacts. Utterly fascinating, two hours well spent. Tuktuk from the ferry and 300R entry including camera fee. Complete bargain.
