I had recenlty visited this place. Was keen to see due to the history's behind it and also because a lot of Malayalam movies are shot here. I felt that the place can be maintained more better. Found a lot of doors and window glasses broken which can be replaced. Wish Indians would learn from the other places abroad on... More

Very Old palace and earlier residence of Kochi Royal family, built in 1865. It is converted as museum with lot of antique items. It has got Jewelleries, Weapons, Vehicles and lot more kept for viewers. It is not at all maintained and should have been taken care in better way. Must watch and spent time.

Very old palace in Kerala. Visited by a lot of tourists. Palace, cars, horse carts, ponds used by the king and family, it is nice to visit this.

It is one of the earliest archeological museums in Kerala.There are lot of gems from the 1800's and 1900's,but the upkeep is so pathetic.The staff are the least courteous and are arrogant at most times.The most upsetting part is the so called 'Deer park' where 50+ deers and other ruminates suffer.The deer park must be relocated for the sake of...

First remove your shoes then leave them at the shoe storage, then go inside and follow the arrows. Many interesting exhibits, which are not always labelled clearly and not terribly well preserved. We particularly liked the portraits which showed an interesting range of costumes.

Good tourist spot. Almost well maintained. It has all the history of Kerala. Got a good wild life sanctuary too. Great place for a good family weekend. Also a must see place for visitors to Kerala.

This is a very interesting museum just outside Cochin. When we visited it was a Saturday morning and it was quite busy although this did not detract from the visit.You climb up a lot of wide steps to get to this Hill Palace and so the views are very good on a clear day. It used to belong to a... More
