About Mattancherry Palace, Kochi
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.
