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 - Write a Review
This is a total waste of ₹100 for entry ₹100 for photography(mobile or camera). Why?? 1. Private property 2. No any planning of things just put them everywhere 3. NO ANY EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE OF VISITING! (These things are not important for any SCHOOL/COLLEGE/JOB preparation! 4. Just old paintings and some leftover Ancient items with no importance 5. There are shops inside with 10X more price from outside I visited Kerala From Delhi and just gone as very less second chance but If you are Okay with above mentioned points you should visit. *National Museum (Delhi) is a very Great and Important museum with lots of Important info that you will find in textbooks of college/schools and much more ,if you have a chance IT IS A MUST VISIT and require whole day.....also ENTRY FEE 30/- and free for Students *
I was awestruck when I entered the museum. It was like entering a treasure filled cave. Each artefact gives a glimpse of our heritage. A few r beyond any expressions. Thanks to Mr n Mrs Joseph for conserving our rich heritage. Because of them I could see and know many age old art culture and the talents of heritage India.
Such an amazing place. I'm glad my wife and I went while we here in Kochi. We learned so much about the last 500 year history of Southern India. I highly recommend this place if you want to learn the vast growing culture of southern India.
Lot of history to be found here. The in house store is quiet expensive though.. Great place to spend time and learn about Kerelas history
It is private Museum by Mr George family, in old Kerala style building. It is well maintained with good collection. If you are interested to known Kerala history, this is right place to visit.
