Not your typical museum. In fact this is a private collection of a rich local couple, that travels around the world. The exhibits are eclectic and vary from local art to world known work of glass, wood, ivory, china and lots more. A very nice way to spend an hour.

We visited this on our way out of Alleppey but there was nothing much to admire. It houses the personal collection of the owner, business magnate, but the things on display was nothing different or of great historical value. The collections were clubbed in a manner similar to most other museums in India and were vast!

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.

The beautiful building itself got my attraction at first. Its a family owned museum, all the things u see there were collected by the family over generations. Really appreciate that. So please dnt expect to see the variety u see in a government owned museum. Dnt prefer the place if u have small kids with u,they may not enjoy. Otherwise... More

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

This is a private place containing varied collections of Mr. Revi Karunakaran, built as a museum by his wife. The museum has a nominal entrance fees. Good place to check out probably the largest collection of ivory crafts, swarovski crystals, and varied range of glass/crystal collections from various parts of the world. Additionally, there is also a traditional Kerala room,... More

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.
