As a Malayalee who is based in the UK and having travelled to over four different continents, this is by far the best sight in Kochi. What is most remarkable is that this hidden gem is the creation of a husband and wife team that has taken seven years to collect and build.

'Limca Books of Records' has certified the museum for the best National achievement.

Remarkable collection of artifacts. Some rickshaws apparently pretend they don't know the place because the museum refused to give them a "cut" of the revenue, so you might need to persevere and ask a few drivers. It is close to Sarovaram restaurant, which is GREAT, so worth combining them for a nice half day trip from Fort Kochin
