Visited the museum with so much expectation. But the situation was contrary to that. The condition of the museum is deteriorating and i think is due to the poor management. A table made out of marble is lying on the floor broken in to pieces. I don't know why the authorities are so much reluctant to the condition of the museum. I feel so bad that a good piece of our history is being maintained poorly like this.
It's a good museum. It's can't give a complete information about Arakkal dynasty, but it will gave some basic knowledge about them..
If you got interested in the dynasty which ruled present Maldives and lakshadives it is a good informative museum.
The Arrakkal Museum is a museum 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 Government of Kerala. It was opened in July 2005 after a Rs. 9,000,000 renovation. Although renovated by the government, the Arakkalkettu is still owned by the Arakkal Royal Trust and does not fall under the control of the country's archaeology department, the Archaeological Survey of India. The government had taken a keen interest in preserving the heritage of the Arakkal Family, which had played a prominent role in the history of Malabar. A nominal entry fee is charged by the Arakkal Royal Trust from visitors to the museum.
