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.

  • A mind blowing place where u will get lost in a world of artifacts and that too, around 20000 of them. If you ever loved visiting any museum, then u definitely need to visit this private museum. Trust me you wont regret it. The ticket is ₹ 100/ person and extra charge of ₹ 100 for using a camera..be it your phone camera or DSLR!! And it's worth the price u pay!!

  • Nice place to see the old age things in. Kerala. However the place is very small. Its a very small place with ground plus one floor. You could easily finish the seeing within 20 mins. Photography is not allowed inside so no use of actually going inside as the ticket is some 200rs. My wife went inside and I waited outside taking care of kid

  • Private "museum". Most items for sale. It is more of an antique market under a single roof or antique shopping mall. The young guides are nice and polite. The older ladies have bad attitude and are very rude.They Get irritated on questions. As this is a market and not an exhibit museum, you will find it like a warehouse, cramped for space. Items are too costly for most Indians to afford. Nice for one time visit only if you really have spare time. The building is impressive from outside. The drivers and guides get high incentive hence will convince you to visit it for sure. Caution, don't buy essential oils from here, they are fake. I bought oil which does not have any fragrance left after few days.

  • It's a private museum owned by a family. They purchased the collection across India and turned the collection into a museum. Some items are on sale. When you enter, they ask you where you are from. That's only to find out whether they will charge you Rs100 (locals) or any other price they want. My rate was Rs200. There are no price tables so they can decide on the price on the fly, so that's the part I did not really like. A bit of clear order without ambiguity would be most welcome, just like any other respectable museum. Other than that, the item collection is quite nice. The young ladies who assist you are very nice and explain some history behind the main exposés.

  • 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.
