  • A unique museum unlike any other in the world. Amazing to see what nature can carve from wood, and kudos to owner of the place for all the efforts she has gone through to collect these priceless pieces of art. This place already has been entered into the Limca Book of Records. Time for Guiness to make a note of this place!
  • Very energetic lady. Driftwood isn't for sale. A very passionate collection.
  • This remarkable museum is indeed one of a kind, it showcases the art carved by nature. I was fascinated to hear the various methods by which driftwood is collected and polished. The hardwork that goes into capturing it's beauty is commendable. The curator of the museum is awe inspiring; a strong woman who has managed to leave behind her legacy that was started with nothing but hobby. I definitely recommend a visit to this museum as it is an example of innovation and creativity .
  • It is unique and the way mrs raji guided was appreciable. Anyone visiting Kerala should visit this museum.
  • Beautiful expo combined with the energy and passion of Mrs Raji makes this a very unique experience. Recommended!
