  • A small Catholic Museum with objects mainly liturgical of 18 centuries and 19 mostly, some very beautiful. Very little there is and be covered in a few minutes. If you are interested in this type of samples, it's okay. The entrance is very economical. Pictures and videos are not permitted.

  • 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.
  • If the guy at the ticket booth is someone called Joseph, please don't enter. My trip to the museum was ruined by him and if you scroll down to previous comments, you'll notice a pattern. Joseph is very handsy and inappropriate and shouldn't be allowed to work anywhere he is able to be alone with women. I've learned that he has been cautioned by the police twice before about his behaviour towards female visitors yet he's somehow managed to keep his job. Since the police seemed unconcerned about this, I recommend just avoiding the place completely.
  • This is a dud place. I expected to see more but it's almost like a small house which has been converted into a musuem. It is said to be built on a fort whose remains lie beneath. When I went to see it, it was a huge disappointment. Skip this place if you're not into Indiana Jones. The museum has artefacts of Christianity like crosses, statues, clothing, stone tablets etc. Not worth the time or entry fee in my opinion.
  • 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.
  • 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.
