Keep your expectations in check while visiting this museum. It's essentially a compilation of an individual's/his family's personal belongings. If you have an hour or so to kill, and nothing else to do, maybe you should visit this place, but not otherwise. Strictly mediocre.

It located in the city centre. lot of old antique collections from various countries can see there. Most of them are small or medium sized show pieces which bought by hand from various countries. suitable to spend at least one hour. No parking space have seen.

It is a private museum. Very attractive place. The entry fee is Rs 150/- per head, but worth the value of spending such an amount. Has a huge collection of various sculptures, works in crystals, paintings, old vessels and traditional attractions of Kerala. The interesting thing is that the museum has been maintained clean and the items are presented attractively.... More

A impressive well maintained private museum, right in the centre of Alleppey town. From a mighty 8 cylinder 1946 car, to India s largest collection of registered Sandalwood collection. Huge collections of Crystals like Sarovski, porcelain, precious stones etc. Photography not allowed inside.

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!
