Arakkal Museum, Kannur Reviews

  • Historical museum providing information about Kerala's only Muslim royal dynasty. The history their trade with the Dutch, Portuguese, French and other colonial forces is available here through various scripts. Lot of antique pieces, historical documents, traditional equipments kept here. Its a must visit place in Kannur city for those interested in seeking history. Entry fee is 20₹. There is no separate parking area for the museum. You can park vehicle on the roadside. This is very calm place. Though its not so large one you can roam around about half an hour inside watching this historic place.

  • This one is actually an old palace of the Kannur based Arakkal dynasty, who were the only Muslim dynasty of the Kerala. The palace, its rooms and the old items used by the rulers during their golden era are displayed here. Later, this palace has converted to Arakkal museum. Its not a crowded place, so you will get space to park your vehicle. Its best suited for a calm outing

  • It is a small walk through the museum, there are only 3 rooms on two levels , you can go through the museum in 15mins , not many artifacts. The colour window does look pretty cool . There is no parking lot , if you have a two wheeler there is little space , but no way you can stop your car here. It has a brief history of the royal family that lived here , some artifacts , thought I think the way it is displayed can be far better ,couldn't see the detail carving on the sticks and it's not even discribed properly . I wish this place had little more to offer.

  • The Arrakkal Museum is museum a dedicated to the Arakkal family, the only Muslim royal family in Kerala, India. The museum is actually a section of the Arakkalkettu (Arakkal Royal Palace). The durbar hall section of the palace has been converted into a museum by the ഗവണ്മെന്റ് ഓഫ് Kerala. It was opened in July 2005 after a Rs. 9,000,000 renovation

  • Arakkal museum Arakkal museum is refurbished from arakkal palace durbar hall, which was the one and only muslim king territory in kerala handed over by kerala government. This place is located next to kannur railway station and also known as arakkal kettu or arakkal fort. The museum arranged with the things which was used by arakkal king family.
