  • Mostly xix century liturgic items or their fragments presented in rather gloomy rooms. Does not explain a lot about Kochi legacy. Basement exhibition was flooded at the time of visit. Optional visit, ...  more »

  • The Manager is very polite and starts you off with a small introduction. Treasure house of Portuguese cathoLic history and artifacts. Interesting to note that the Portuguese introduced Mother Mary and infant Jesus in continuity of the Devi worship. Teal Gold and Silver artifacts..Priceless. 1star minus for no mosquito control.
  • Expected to learn more about the influence of Portuguese trading on the area but all the pieces are from Catholic Churches. If you are interested in religious history maybe you would like it, but it wasn't for me. Also staff member at desk was exceptionally rude.
  • Museum is average but the ticket counter guy Joseph was extra friendly and sweet to us. Gave us a guided tour of the museum. The outside area is beautiful.
  • MY grd parents late Abraham Arnold Pitter n Emily Pitter supposedly buried in COCHIN Did not visit Museum //No clue Colleen Traynor
  • The guy at the museum gave a guided tour to a group earlier but not for us. He later proceeded to go for a tea break and was about to close the place, haven't come across this at a museum before

Where to stay in Kochi (Cochin)

Kochi offers abundant hospitality options, including a dense collection of international five-star hotels. Travelers on a budget can explore the selection of modest but impeccable homestays and guesthouses in the quieter neighborhoods just outside the central tourist area of Fort Cochin; these make great places to meet local hosts and fellow travelers. If you can spend a bit more, a number of boutique hotels in converted European-style mansions offer individual charm, and eco-villages and resort or retreat establishments outside the city center come with full wellness, spa, and culinary packages.
