Nice place to spent a full day with your beloved one .

You will never think about time if you wandering around the museum. If you are a malayali (mallu) , you can recollect lots of scenes from movies.

The museum should have been in the limelight for the extensive layout and artifacts it depicts. Rarely promoted and lesser know this is a very good museum to see when you are in Kerala

But now many spots are closed and only very little space is open to public. When asked they told renovation was going on. We planned to spend more than half... More

It is such a wonderful building - showing all the craft and mastery of the Kerala woodwork, mingled with the Western influence. But sad! Tourists (and also the keepers) are ignorant and careless, damaging an architectural marvel! It would be great if the priceless exhibits were cared for more and presented in a better manner.

Attractive and peaceful grounds. Had to wait quite a while for the palace to open. Lots of building work underway. Museum wasn't really worth the wait, a quick walk around a few exhibits and outside again. Main highlight was the jewel room.
