I loved different pieces of art specially the bronze ones. Explanations are also in English. Wonderful variety of objects that reflect Kerala's ancient society.

The Napier Museum is a beautiful building and was interesting to see both inside and out. The statues and artefacts inside are also very interesting and its amazing to see the intricacy of the carvings on some of them. We didn't spend very long here but worth walking round and inside.

A very detailed museum with a variety of artifacts. The figures of a lot of Gods of all shapes and sizes of different eras is a must watch. But the heat is unbearable.

It was a good collection of ancient artifacts from Kerala history. Wish that there was more explanation though as we didn't really know what was going on most of the time.
