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.

Are you really a lover of different show piece collections? This is a private museum which does have really good collection of old years porcelain, ivory, silver, wood, swarorski limited editions etc.., The entry fee is really expensive (150/-). If you really like stuff than its worth! So think about it!!

The swaroski crystals are amazing. The famour natural color art painting at the entrance is eye catcher. It has got many other antiques, go check it out yourself.

It is an average museum. But you can spent time without loosing energy. evening time is best to visit here. In rush time it will be little difficult to come here.

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
