Kerala Folklore Museum - Review
Everything in this museum is a treasure celebrating Kerala and its heritage, including the building itself. Combining the architectural styles of Malabar, Cochin and Travancore, the museum was imagined as a temple to art. It's very entrance is made from parts of an 16th century temple in Tamil Nadu and various carvings from around Kerala. The first floor of the museum focuses on dance - Theyyam, Kathakali, Ottanthullal, and Mohiniyattam - and their various costumes. The floor above focuses on painting, and just check out the ceiling, which is made from 60 different frames. The last floor is a beautiful performance theatre. Altogether there are 4000 artefacts on exhibit including masks, sculptures, instruments, utensils, manuscripts and jewellery. Some of these are from as far back as the Stone Age. Kerala Folklore Museum - Kerala tourist attraction added in the Kerala Itinerary 10 Days. Must visit this amazing attraction.

Kerala Folklore Museum, Kochi Reviews
Absolutely no words to explain. This place is divine. Preserving and collecting 50K+ historical, religious and cultural items/antiques. Had a great time visiting this amazing museum. One of the proudly place from God's own country to represent the culture of Kerala. The ambience and atmosphere inside is speechless. Felt, the space is less compared to antiques. Many items were placed congested. Looking forward to visit again. The staffs are very helpful. They told about the history behind the things and all. Small shops are available to buy things from there itself. You are allowed to take photographs and need to pay additional fee.
Well, I would like to say that you should spend a half a day in here at least but the heat might consume you. First of all, it is a phenomenal museum. It is a collection of items by a family with no order, rhyme or reason to them. Everything you can imagine and can't imagine is here. It is all piled into this building that has so little air to breathe. We went in February but because this is a naturally hot part of the country, nothing could have kept us cool. Hence, you might have to limit your time unless you fan yourself the whole time. The presentation was interesting but they can't point out everything. We were a group of 8 and none of us took the option to purchase a ticket to take pictures, but our guide went ahead and bought it for the group. We were glad he did because there is so much to see and look at that you will have to digest it later when you have more time. You'll enjoy seeing this museum as there isn't a lot to see in Cochin. But beware of the heat. You'll have to take your shoes off too!
This place is heaven for those who simply loves art and history. It is a well maintained space. All the artifacts are properly placed and preserved. The best part was the interlocking system used for the second floor ceiling. I was highly impressed to see that age old ceiling holding the place right. The girls that are appointed to explain the facts were warm and friendly. Overall it was an amazing experience.
It is one of most interesting place to know the cultural diversity of God's own country Kerala. The three storey building that traditionally built with locally available stones will makes the museum unique. One can spend hours if not days to look in to each of historically important relics. It is worth your every dime you spend visiting this place
Inexpensive and easy way to learn about the history and culture of Kerala. You can spend an hour to 3 taking in the many objects from giant boats to old coins. You can also pay for antiques as well if you are in need of some gifts; but be aware they won't haggle with you and they will charge you the tourist price if well, you look like one. Please support this place as they struggle during the off season to keep the artifacts in good condition.
