A tour of the museum would feel like a walk through a story-book. Artifacts and exhibits, rearranged chronologically, tell the history of Cochin in an engaging way. Into its third phase of renovation, the Dutch Palace museum in Mattancherry has murals that have been pictographically explained. Once the abode of the Cochin Royal Family, it has preserved objects used by the members—clothes, jewellery and other items such as an ivory palanquin, royal umbrellas, howdah, coins, stamps and drawings. It also has a portrait gallery of the Cochin Rajas. The structure, believed to have been built by the Portuguese in early 16th century and modified by the Dutch in 1663, was restored and declared a centrally-protected monument in 1951 by the Archaeological Survey of India. It was established as a museum in 1985.

Mattancherry Palace, Kochi Reviews - Write a Review
Went to this place with customers. Cannot be called as a palace. Small in size. Could have been maintained better. They are not providing tour guides which can explain the history. But local guides are available outside. Not enough artifacts available at palace.
This is one of the oldest palace built by Dutch and has some authentic painting on the wall. Entry fee is Rs. 5 per person. Parking is available at the road going to the palace. Has big information boards with pictures to give an idea about the palace and Kerala history in general. Lack basic facilities like public restroom and water. Lacking for a major tourist spot.
This palace is also famous by the name, Dutch palace. It was gifted by Portugese to the king of Cochin in 16the century. There are many historical pictures and paintings of late rulers of Kerala. One can see the well preserved dresses and weapons of then Kings of Kerala.
Top floor of the palace is used for exhibit the murals of portraits of old time pictures. Inside ground floor there is no entry for visitors. There is a small temple situated inside ground floor.Still there is Poojas and prayers are going on.
DOV:Dec2016 Its popularly known as Dutch palace and built by Portuguese. Built and maintained in very traditional way, it contains many portraits of maharajas. The 3d portrait which faces u in multiple directions is the highlight of the palace. Worth spending time here!!
