Pazhassiraja Museum and Art Gallery is beautifully located among the picturesque settings of Kozhikode and it is an ultimate destination for the historians and aficionados of art and literature. The art gallery is located in the vicinity of the museum and exhibits a number of paintings of Kerala's respected artists, including the Raja Ravi Varma, and Raja Varma, who were the connoisseurs of paintings and other performing arts. It is said that these paintings tell tales from the past and gives a visual history of Kerala.

The Pazhassi Raja Museum and Art Gallery is one of the best places to visit in Calicut. Named after the famous ruler Pazhassi Raja who fought the British with the help of tribes, the museum displays a variety of monuments, mural paintings, and old coins.

Pazhassi is an Erstwhile Raja of Malabar and the name is apt for the museum in Calicut.I revisted again today to collect some historical facts about our civilisation especially about the Deities worshipped in Malabar during Common Era since 10 th Century CE till 18th Century C.E and also you can refer books from the library in the museum which also includes Malyalam lexicon.

I happened to revisit the museum after a long hiatus ...The Main Museum is located on the Hilltop near Kendriya Vidyalaya ,Easthill Calicut is about 10 kms from the City Railway and Bus Station .The Place has Ample parking Space and with a Nominal Fee .it also has Two museums in the Compound. One is a 3D Art Gallery and another one is V.K.Krishna menon Gallery .

The Entrance Fee to the Main Museum is Rs.25 and you can carry Camera by paying Additional fee.The Museum holds all wares and Artefacts of Neolithical Era and also has costumes and Weapons of Rulers of Ancient Kerala which was a princely State.

it also Throw light to the Origin of Malayalam Language and the Deities Worshipped during that Era .

A must visit if you have Archeological Interest in the History of Kerala.

One has to climb up the slope to reach this place. Lot of metal works, sculptures, models of temples etc were there. A must visit for history lovers. Otherwise, it’s a nice place to go around and one can spend at least 2 hours here.

Pazhassi Raja Museum is located on East Hill, Kozhikode. From Mavoor Road Junction, it is 6.0 km by road (15 min). There is a Kendriya Vidyalaya next to the museum. One has to climb up the hill to reach the place.
The museum building is 200 years old and is constructed in Kerala architectural style. It was known as East Hill Bungalow. The bungalow served as a court during the British rule. The basement was used as a jail. It was turned into an archaeological museum in 1976. In 1980, museum was renamed Pazhassi Raja Archaeological Museum. It is managed by Kerala State Archaeology Department.
The central hall of the museum displays a collection of ancient coins, weights, pottery and weapons. There are few exhibits directly related to Pazhassi Raja.
In the verandah surrounding the central room, one can see balustrades, scale models of some temples and a palanquin of the Maharaja of Cochin.
The basement holds many ancient rock sculptures which represent different Hindu Gods. Also in the basement is a gallery of hero stones (veerakkal) which have single panels.
The adjoining Krishna Menon Museum has an extensive collection of personal items used by Sri V.K. Krishna Menon. The art gallery showcases beautiful paintings of Raja Ravi Varma and his uncle Raja Raja Varma. Photography is forbidden in Krishna Menon Museum.
