About Kerala Folklore Museum, Kochi
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
Kerala Folklore Museum is a cultural hub to promote and preserve the culture and heritage of South India. Museum promoted by Mrs. & Mr. George Thaliath aims to preserve, the culture, heritage and folk art education. We created this Temple of art, from 25 ancient structures of heritage, compiling in to a single structure of ancient architecture, with the help of 62 wood workers over a period of 7.5 year's hard work.. It varies from traditional architecture to ancient sculptures, wood work,ancient terracotta, Indian bronzes, stone work,old paintings,old jewelry,old utensils,old agricultural equipment's, old coins and all other ethnic artifacts connected with the rural and tribal life of South India. Museum aims to provide art education to the young generation as well as providing opportunity to the tourist around the globe to experience the unseen Kerala under one roof. Now a days museum became a must see place of visit to the tourist as well as for the students, researchers and for anthropological studies.
Such an awesome place........ This place was actually built coz in this generation, a lot of people doesn't know the old traditions and cultures that existed here a long time ago.... So to show the young and fragile minds that such traditions and cultures existed.... That's the main aim of this place!!!! This place contains all sorts of historical stuffs.... And this place is also a tourist attraction...
Great collection of local lore items, and not only. Three floors are packed with masks, statues, carvings, dolls, and much more. There are so many things packed in this little building that some are simply labeled as "wooden statue". Unless rushed, plan several hours if you want to see everything up close, and not just rush through as rickshaw is waiting for you to take you back, and probably convince to visit one of his friends' stores that will sell you carpets cheaply. Right... But this place is definitely worth a visit, if not for folklore, at least to experience how one person's obsession developed into the museum.
Usual museum owned by a person and not govt. Unnecessarily high entry ticket of Rs 100 pp. It should be 40-50Rs max. Photography Rs 100 extra. Good to watch for 15-20min
This is a must visit. Run by a family without government's support. They have fantastic collection. Little bit congested on ground floor as there are too many art pieces in a small room. Definitely worth a visit
