The Revi Karuna Karan Museum is among the biggest privately held collection of crystals in the world but has managed to tuck itself away within an oyster shell of anonymity for nearly a decade. One of the reasons why not many know of this glittery cornucopia is a telling pointer to the evanescence of tourism ethos that historically marked Kerala’s... More

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.

Another place you can visit when you are in Alleppey is this Museum. The fee per person is a steep Rs 150/- but the ground and first floor of artefacts is to be seen to be believed. Each of the article presented in the Museum is a master piece especially the wide range of Swarwoski Crystal works. The entire collection... More

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
