“A very average Museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

The Museum is located in a relatively small, old building, the external look is very simple and ordinary. It is unbelievable to note that a king of the Province who even owned the St.Angelo fort before British took over it, could have lived in such a simple and unassuming building. However the interior, presents a neatly maintained appearance. The displayed items in the Museum include some paintings, armoury, silverware, glassware etc. which are very few in numbers and the whole Museum can be seen in 30 minutes time. There is an entry fee of Rs.10/- per adult and Rs.25/- for Camera. There is a display board of the Arakkal dynasty History( I have attached the Photo) which states that the family receives a sum of Rs.23000/- per annum only, even now, which was started in the year 1908 which is quiet surprising. This Museum is OK for a small town like Kannur and can not be compared to Museums in big cities in India.
