“Absolutely worth the entry fee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

We went to the museum because the driver took us there. We were initially out off by the Rs.100 per person entry fee, but after browsing inside, we felt the price was worth it. The collection inside is fascinating. The lady who put it together over several decades must have had not just tons of money, but good taste as well. The collection of art objects spans the entire globe, representing art from all parts of India, Europe, and South America. The guide explained the individual collections well. Gems, jewelry, paintings, sculpture, Faberge eggs, Swarovsky limited editions, Murano glass, etc. It is all there. Thousands of pieces of beautiful art, looks like each piece has been individually chosen as the best from the style it represents.

“expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

The entry fee is 100 per person. The collection is very exclusive. it has the best ivory collection in the country(their claim). Though it has a sizeable collection, the high entry fee does not substantiate the items on display

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

In Aleppy , there is nothing of tousris attaction apart from House Boats, beach , light house and understanding and enjoying local cultures and traditions.
We had a some free time and decided to visit , the Revi K Museusm.
It was a very good decision, the mueseum has a very large colections of iveory carvings of highest quality , swarossy crystal items and the best of porcelene idols .
The ivory shakuntala and Vishu is carved with mind boggling details.
The meseum is two story and also has a Kerala Traditional room , worth visiting .
It is a must destination when visiting Aleppy or Kumarkom
