  • One of the best museum in Kerala, the one which all malayalees should be proud of. Located in the outskirts of Cochin city. Really a good place to spend time and could go through the exhibits, paintings, sculpture, marbles and so many such art of facts which where use by the Cochin royal family. One who is interested in this history should definitely visit this place.
  • Historical place. Spread around a large area. You'd need to stretch your legs out to see all the history preserved. It gives you a leap into the historical life that was in Cochin years back. Nicely maintained with all sorts of facilities for the visitors.
