Museum to be visited

Excellent collection of antiques. It was interesting to see the collections and get an exclusive feeling which you normally see in other museums

the collection at revi karunakaran museum was good and unique, we got entry at 5 pm and the museum closed at 5.30. so we are unable to see things properly but whatever we could see in half hour was good and unique, to thoroughly view the place you need good 2 hours.

A museum with a bunch of random stuff a rich family has collected and put on display. Found this very strange and boring.

Please dont go here unless you are a fond of some pictures . this is private place and you need to pay a charge which is nominal but not worthy for a common person like me.

Are you really a lover of different show piece collections? This is a private museum which does have really good collection of old years porcelain, ivory, silver, wood, swarorski limited editions etc.., The entry fee is really expensive (150/-). If you really like stuff than its worth! So think about it!!

The swaroski crystals are amazing. The famour natural color art painting at the entrance is eye catcher. It has got many other antiques, go check it out yourself.
