It as not a planned visit, kind of popped in to check what it is about. Was delighted to see the Artifacts collection here. Happened to speak to one of the partners of this place-Mrs George if I am not mistaken, she explained their 30 years journey of collating these Antique Artifacts - Hats off to you guys! The place is very well maintained. You will get to see some of the Artifacts as old as 10-11 century. Recommend this place as a must visit place if you are in Kochi!

Nice collection of old artifats which alone do not make a story but come to live buy the guide whose enthusam for the collection and the way he tells the tale made it an interesting visit.

This family owned museum has been built up over many years and showcases a massive variety of Kerala artefacts. The themes for each floor are slightly lost by the sheer volume of material on display but a great insight into the area's background and culture.
