Arakkal Museum, Kannur Reviews - Write a Review
It is one of the rare museum which highlights on the history of Kannannur, Kerala. It highlights on Women Muslim Rulers in India. The Arakkal Palace is converted to a museum. The entrance fee is moderate. The article and photos and paintings are kept safely and neatly. But the local informations and other things are available only in Malayalam. The tourists are not limited to Kerala. Several National and International tourists visit the museum. So I will request the authorities to publish Information in English and if possible in Indian languages.The washroom facilities are available.
One of the must visited museums in kannur, It's a small place which turned into a museum. The exhibitions are from the old Muslim family dynasty which lived in the palace. It's a nice visit for families. Staffs are well mannered. You can also see the sea 🌊 from the museum. There's not much exhibitions in the museum, you can spend maximum an hour in here. It's very accessible from central Kannur I recommend it. If you're visiting Kannur, I highly recommend it.
This museum is absolutely tiny and does not have a lot to look at. There are only a few interesting objects, but they are not labelled and everything is dusty. There is a lot of modern art which feels out of place. Overall it's just not an interesting collection of items, and you will be done in about 10 minutes.
A traditional Muslim family of Kannur. The Arakkal Tharavad had landed property around Kannur and in island and was under control of the town area. Muslim community used to consider the "Rajah" as the religious head. There is a small historical exhibition in their Tharavad, now known as Arakkal Museum
It is the palace of the great arakkal dynasty. Historically very important place. The meuseum doesnt seem to be very well maintained. More care should be given for preserving historic buildings like this.
