We had been to this museum this october with our 2 year old daughter. Entry fee is very expensive. Rs 150. I had insisted them that only I would visit them as my kid would not be that keen in viewing the collection. However the guy there convinced us that this is a must see place. There is a great...

I couldnt find much info on any travel books - hence i was treated for a very pleasant surprise when the taxi driver took us there. Tickets are expensive - 150/- per head. However, the staff clarified that most of the money is paid to Govt as entertainment tax. Its an awesome experience to view such a large private collection.... More

They have a fantastic collection but I almost passed away from sweating in its humid interior. Wish they'd have the AC on. Atleast we paid for the entry fee (150 per head). The caretaker helped us guide through it seamlessly. But the heat made me want to get out ASAP

If you've got an hour to kill... Much of the collection is unique such as the ivory. But some of it is, shall we say, tchotkies from cruises or Franklin Mint. Go with a sense of humor. If you're a foreigner you're probably get a 'private tour' where the guide just reads the un-informative plaques for you. But it's better... More

One of its kind, not advertised much (on purpose) and slightly higher entry fees (Rs 150/- pp) as a gating to keep the crowd away.. It definitely exceeded our expectations in many ways. As told by the guide, this is only one of its kind private museums in India. This is unique exclusive collection of stuff carved out of crystals,... More

I would really summarize it in one word "Breathtaking". See it to believe it. Tickets are a bit costly though (Rs.150/- per person.) but it is a must visit.

What a collection of swarovski! Though money can buy one must have the heart to buy this costly with the certificates. They have not made any advertisements and expect only those who are genuinely interested to come see it. Earning is not their motive. Must visit place in Alleppy. Personally having this collection is really worthwhile! Well maintained,

This is only one of its kind private museums in India. The collection is unique and very exclusive. The tastes of the lady who created it and the curator are very rich and artistically opulent. The object put on display are also piece of great work specially the ivory work displayed. The collection of coins, Swarovski products and other things... More

This is a private museum located near the Alleppey beach (around 2km from the beach). Nothing historical about this museum as it is just a collection of art and sculpture from around the world without any history to it. The only attraction is elephant teeth miniature sculptures which is worth mention. After looking at items like singer sewing machine and... More
