    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 .

    Bay Island Museum is a nature's gift. I am surprised to see the fossilized wooden sculptures. It is being taken to crown by human effort. Congrats and may God bless them for tireless effort

    Blown away by the skill, detail and dedication that is put into these Fossilized wooden sculptures. My Visit to bay island driftwood museum is something that will remain with me for a lifetime... Mrs Raji, who personally guides you around, explains the exhibits and above all it's not only the sculptures, which is remarkable but also her attention to detail, which makes the museum, the most unique and special.

    Bay Island Driftwood Museum is a nature's gift which was wonderfully blended by God's gifted hands and eyes ..... Being from kottayam I am really proud that this is located in my home town and I can proudly take all my friends and relatives to this place to make their visit to my native place more special..... Each and every fossilized sculpture there are just perfect and they are even speaking to us by the voice of their inventor Raji Mam.... Above all I am amazed and proud that the backbone of all these is a WOMAN!!!! It will be a visual treat for all....

    Amazing sculptures. The story of how she collected them is amazing. Be prepared to hear 'by the power and mercy of the Lord' alot though.
