Parked right outside the museum are two toy train engines which the princes used to sit in and go from palace to schoolgrounds. Inside is an exhibit of the prince's personal collection of sculpture, crockery, art pieces and manuscripts. it is in need of good upkeep.. not wheelchair friendly.

For a ticket costing just under 500/- rupees, the visit to the palace museum is overrated. You get a "guided" tour using a pre-recorded voice over of the "attractions".

You would need about 1-2 hours to see the place. photography is not permitted inside the museum. The art collection includes portraits and mythology paintings drawn by Raja Ravi Varma. There are paintings by western artists too. The exhibits also include vessels, bowls, vases and several statues based on the statue models from European nations.
