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 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

This private museum has an extensive collection of "Kitch" from all around the world. It has the largest Swarovski collection in the world. This is actually one of the few museums my kids (8 years old) actually enjoyed. Our guide was very friendly and knew a lot about the pieces.
