This could potentially have been an excellent attraction if only it was better maintained. Similar story of most of the attractions in India. The environs around are very good and there some interesting collections. Needs proper maintenance to make it a major attractions. As it is, it is okay for a visit if one is in the area and has...

The Hill Museum is a good archaeological place. Climbing the stairs to the excellent view of the hills, calm and clear atmosphere and the nice display of historic artifacts is worthwhile!

It's a shame that this palace is under maintained and left to collect dust. The palace has some interesting artifacts which just need a desperate clean. Worth going here just for the deer park. There are hundreds of spotted seers here which is rare to see.

The erstwhile palace of the Earliest Kochi kings. A must visit if u love history. The Jewels and the Armaments collections are well presented. Surprisingly well maintained and protected. The place is under security. So be prepared to leave your phones and bags behind in your car or at the Locker space just before entering the museum. Photography aint allowed... More

Everybody who comes to Cochin should make sometime to be here as its a place where you can understand the true worthiness of our place and why its called God's Own Country and what all we had in the past and what all we lost. Its the best place to show our kids. Have a nice time.

Work does appear to be underway to keep this palace in a presentable condition. Gardens were very colourful and the grounds very pleasant. The deer looked a little unhappy and a life sized dinosaur was a strange sight.

I stay very near to this place and we go for morning walk in this erstwhile palace of the Cochin kingdom. The grounds are excellent to be developed as a great park. However parts of it are pretty forestry. The palace currently functions as a museum and holds some treasures of the past. They do have a deer park which... More
