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,.

A private museum with collections of a family. The ivory collection is very impressive and it looks that almost all the pieces of Swarovski crystals are on display. Lladro figurines are also aplenty.

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.

Though I have been to several museums and art galleries I found the Revi Karunakaran Memorial Museum which has a different history. It is the net result of the vision and efforts of Shri. Revi Karunakaran. I spent about three hours in this well maintained museum. The art works, crystal collections, ivory art collections, the paintings, a huge mural painting,... More

This is a private museum of Ravi Karunakaran. Even to date this is very well maintained. There are real antique items which are to date maintained very well. It is sad that they do not allow us to take pictures for our memories. As a consolation, picture postcards are available.
