  • It is a must go place, if you don't go there then I don't think you need to see anything, its just brilliant, its a private museum but the stuff they have is so much that even government museum cannot afford them. It have I think india's largest ivory collection. Its just a must see place. And i assure you that you will get speechless after that visit. The cameras are not allowed
  • A good collection of items ranging from ivory carvings to swarowski crystals. Entry is rs. 200 per head. Footwear should be left outside. The groundfloor displays an antique Buick car and some beautiful furniture imported from Sri Lanka, Hungary etc. The first floor displays some priceless ivory pieces. A whole section is dedicated to swarowski crystals of all types. There is a section for art from kerala. Overall it's worth a visit and one can spend 1 to 2 hours here easily.
