So I visited this place with my parents and it was our observation that Mrs Karunkar has done great justice to the memory of Mr Revi by opening this museum. It would possibly have been wrecked in the government/state hands as some of the artefacts on display are priceless. But in this place the artefacts are beautifully displayed, there is... More

this is a private museum and i think they opened for business purpose. they are charging 150/- per head. the museum quality and stuffs inside is very good. it shows revi karunakaran belong to very rich family. some things are very exotic and eye-catchy but some are similar to others. staff should be better to explain the things,.

it is personal collection, wished staff could be more welcoming. They were waiting for us to leave rooms to switch off lights, they didnt even start AC saying climate was good. We all were sweating and suffocating inside.

It was supposed to be a leisure trip to the museum along with the kids but the whole family enjoyed it. The collections are nice and the ivory, crystal collection was priceless. Was time quite well spent.
