(240+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Wander around DakshinaChitra Museum, a campus-like museum where the history of south India comes to life. You can enter the buildings, all of which are original and were removed from their previous locations to be re-erected at the open-air museum, whose name translates as “Picture of the South.” Watch demonstrations of the craftsmen’s work and art; you can even buy some of the works as souvenirs afterwards. Put DakshinaChitra Museum on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Muttukadu trip itinerary maker.

  • Nice place to go for one day outing. There were many real model traditional south Indian houses for viewing. Reminding the good olden days of our village life. Houses are maintained in good condition. A sound guide would a good option to explore more about the concept. Little bit of music in the room will make the room lively. A small park for children's to play Small shops for purchasing handcrafts Food facility is not properly arranged. While we purchase the tickets if we get a small guide to explore about the place and concept it would be great.
