One of the best collections of Raja Ravi Varma paintings can be found in this museum. Also has a small rail engine on display in the garden, which was used by the princes of yesterdays for going to school.

The entrance is quite non-descript. There are no sign-boards at all. Otherwise the collection though limited is good. The entrance ticket of Rs.60/- looked expensive but when the staff patiently and nicely explained the history of the paintings and pointed out some of the paintings with 3-D effect, it felt worth it.
