  • This is nice place to visit who loves History. I was lucky to visit this place with two Portuguese people who can identify and explain all the pieces on display. It was great experience and also help me to know more about India-Portuguese relationship and influence in our culture.
  • It's near Fort Kochi and has lot of antiques preserved in the best possible way. Ground floor you can see remains of Portuguese fort and on the first floor there are valuable antiques stored. People who like history can visit.
  • History has always intrigued me and the Indo-Portuguese Museum fed my curiosity well. The amalgamation of Portuguese culture and Keralan art is evident in various art-forms and traditions prevalent even today. Even in architecture this blend can be witnessed. The relation between these two distinct cultures must have been amicable in order to facilitate such a marriage of cultures. The exhibits here is a testimony of this relation which existed between the Portuguese and Keralan people. The influence this relation had on art, culture, tradition, architecture, cuisine, religion and every other aspects that governed a community's identity, is immense and lives even today.
  • This is an awesome stop to get a bit of an historic overview of the colonial past of Fort Kochi. The attendants there are very knowledgeable and friendly and eager to answer any questions. Don't plan to spend more than 30 minutes here though as there is only about 5 sections to view. Entrance fee was 25 rupees per person.
  • Has some interesting collection if you are interested in Portuguse history. The watch man was on break when I visit, had to wait for him to come back. Then he told me that I am not allowed to turn on my phone, even if I am only to take notes, which I wanted to do, since sadly it was one of the museum that don't allow photo taking even without flash :(. This must be the strictist museum I have been too around the world! Seriously can't take notes on your phone!! The watch man is not professional and hinted to me after asking where I was from that paying extra might bend some rules! After refusing his offer he seem inpatient with me, giving me a sense that he wants me to finish quickly!
