We strolled to the Museum Complex during our morning walk. As expected, it wasn't open then. As it was our last morning there, we didn't get a chance to return. It's also called Ziegenbalg House.

The museum looked in good shape but we can't say the same about the church. It was completely rundown, maybe destroyed in the tsunami.

The Ziegenbalg Museum and Press are difficult to find because the map given by the hotel is not accurate and the streets are not named. Locals are unable to provide directions since they are usually unaware of the attraction, even if they live close to it!

Located on Admiral Street within a school complex.
INTACH manage this building. It has been renovated and the historical content is worth a visit. Storyboards in local language and English are available. The press is upstairs. It is said to be the first printing press in India and the first to print the translated bible in the local language. The press continues to operate today to create posters for local events and provide historical value.

Next to the Museum is the small church. This was closed but it would have been interesting to see this as it was probably the first church in Tranquebar.
