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.

  • Great place to get an insight for Kerala traditions. This is a fascinating private collection of artifacts from Kerala. Entrance is just 200 Rs. 100 Rs for Photography. Worth every Rs :). They also have a shop where you can buy special artifacts and some normal tourist stuff and a small spice art cafe.

  • One stop pit stop to experience Kerala for those who don't have enough time to explore. Amazing place to experience culture and tradition of Kerala in an hour or so. Highly recommend this place for tourists from outside Kerala and India to explore the local folklore. Worth the money and time for the experience. If you weren't satisfied, stay and explore the state for a month or so to get the full experience

  • Worth every penny. Must visit in Ernakulam. The efforts put by promoter is highly appreciable. U get to see centuries old all forms of art, painting, carvings, beautiful ceilings n sculptures from all four states of South India. Entry fee is 100/- per person.

  • The museum is a small ground plus two floors. Not only it has a good collection of items on display but the structure itself from inside and outside is worth seeing. It's also a short drive from Ernakulam south Station and worth a visit if you are around the station or in COCHIN city.

  • Lovely place to visit. If you like antiques and history related stuffs. You will love this place. Only thing the entrance fee and the camera charge is too much I felt.
