Review of Napier Museum

Reviewed April 13, 2014

From outside the building is beautiful. Inside it contains a pretty ordinary collection of bits and pieces from around the south. There is also no air conditioning. Unless you have nothing else to do, I would admire the architecture from outside but not bother to venture in.

It's a great building and worth the effort to walk all the way around to snap a few pics. Inside the collection is fairly eclectic and no photos are permitted. Entrance price is the same for foreigners and locals.

The works in ivory and ivory inlay work in wood displayed here is one of the best. The mueseum also has lot of old and rare items from countries in the Indian ocean area. There is very good collection of coins from most of the south indian dynasties.
