    Excellent place. The museum gives a really good learning and history about the Role of Indian Navy in the 1971 war. The staff here is really supportive and helps you with a detailed narrative and explanation on all ammunition. The museum hosts proto types as well as original ammunition used by the Navy. It also has an old Helicopter used by the Navy. A great learning place for people interested in this field. There are entry fees of rs 40 per person and the museum remains open till 2 pm.

    A bit out of the usual tourist area. The modern Indian art plus the displays and commentary depicting the history of Kerala make it worth the journey.

    The exhibitions when we visited reached from student works to established artists. The standard we very good. To have the artists present in some cases made for additional interest. The Durbar Hall is a special interior repurposed.

    A great place to learn about the history of Cochin. The person at the ticket counter was really interesting and explained us the difference between Kochi and cochin. He also explained us all the details with great patience and interest. The museum also has ruins of an old fort and some great pictures that depict the old cochin region. A must visit place for history lovers. Entry fees : Rs20 Rs.

    The Antique Museum in Jew Town, Mattancherry has a good collection of antiques and the museum will be a feast for those who are interested in antiques. Those who visit Jew Town should not spare the museum and it will make your visit to the town memorable. Antique weapons, palm-leaf engravings, ceramic pots, coins, 110 years old Quran, musical instruments, furniture, calculator...the list is long. I wish the items were displayed in a better way so that we can closely observe the items.

    The International Tourism Police Station and Police Museum at Mattancherry Jew town exhibits various arms, weapons,uniforms, hats, medals, photographs etc related to the Kerala police. The collections will take us through the history of Kerala police from the time of the Travancore Kings to the present day. Last month when I visited the museum it was crowded with school students group and tourists.. The museum is really informative, well maintained and worth visiting.

    This is small on a dusty road, it has no natural light and is very narrow which makes it hard to look at the pictures. The gallery directors Sathya and Geetha Sai don't appear to have any business sense they never answer international phone calls or e-mails. They also don't appear to have much knowledge of the contemporary art scene. They also don't seem to value the safety of woman in their gallery or respect foreign woman. They are currently holding an exhibition for Indian art critic Manoj Nair , but they not include the artists whose work he admired.
