I had little time, so planned to visit here. The Museum is private and it displays all the private collection.

Not often do you get to see someone's private collection. This is well displayed and many of the items are amazing. A very modern collection mostly. Well worth a visit especially if you like glass & ceramics.

if you like antiques, collections and museum in general, you should visit this place. I am not a big fan of museums, but since we had sometime before we could go to the beach, we decided to pay a visit. It was very good and an awesome collection by an individual. Entry fee is Rs 100 per head.
