If you are visiting the famed Shree Padmanabhaswamy Temple, do not give this museum a miss. You might get decieved by the entrance to this almost historic museum since it does not bear any of the grandeur that is inside. Once you step inside, allow yourself to be guided by the soft spoken, extremely knowledgeable lady guides to take you... More

I don't know how many times i have been to this place. Perfect place in Trivandrum for an evening walk and get together. It has been like that and will still be like that. Even when the city kept changing this place still keeps its serenity and decorum.

Very nice place to walk thru and 3 main areas to visit which is the zoo, art gallery and the gardens. We visited during holiday season so many school excursions were ongoing so it was very crowded. We gave the zoo a miss as it was quite hot so headed down to the 2 art galleries. Not to be missed

This complex is a vast stretch of land comprising a museum, an art gallery, zoo & a botanical garden. The museum & Art gallery are interesting for those who haven't seen a museum or Art gallery so far. That's all. The Zoo is a nice place to walk through, but very few animals & maintained very badly. Botanical garden is... More

The museum complex comprises of a huge area which has two museums, an art gallery, a zoo and botanical garden. In addition there are play areas for kids all housed within acres of vibrant coloured flowering plants. A place where you can chill, relax and have a quiet time with nature right at the centre of the city.

Museum complex holds multiple museums together. You will be taken back to historical times when you appreciate the time period of the exhibits. Again there are different science museums dedicated to different branches of sciences. Botany & Zoology students should not miss these museums as these exhibits can give them a great deal of exposure.

The Natural History Museum was good. The aquarium will serve mostly the children.The other collection of the mueseum were also good but as I was comparing the collection of Salarjung at Hyderabad i felt little unsatisfied.

The Zoo should be avoided it us a sad and sorry place)! The Shree Chita Art Museum should be visited and the grounds should be explored leisurely.
