“Worth the time!”
Review of Folklore Museum

Folklore Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 January 2017

Wonderfully curated museum.Recommended for people interested in anthropology, history and culture - and for the ones with curious minds. The place is hard to find but enlisted correctly on the map, so be patient while looking for it (the museum gate was inaccessible by car and we had to walk up to three similar buildings and ask for directions again - it's the building in the middle). Wish it were better maintained and promoted, and the museum caretakers could contribute to our understanding of the artifacts. While the collection is large and engaging, all you do as a visitor is basically figure out where things are and walk by. By the way, the museum visit is absolutely free.

We had been to this place as we heard about it from some westerners! Amazing enough, we followed their advice to sight-see around our own country and found this splendid place.
Beautiful artefacts not only from Mysore but all over Karnataka. Remember that in earlier days, the whole of South India was either Mysore or Madras!
Lovely place to spend at least 2 hours.

An interesting, but not well labelled, collection of folk art and archaeological artefacts. Worth the visit for the building.

This museum has a great collection of artefacts that are pooled in from different part of Karnataka and gives a feel of the states rich folklore. A lot more artefacts needs to be added and the museum has to be maintained well.
