Sacred Heart Natural Science Museum - Review

True to its name, the Sacred Heart Natural Science museum showcases some gory, some pretty parts of natural biology. It has an outstanding taxidermy collection of more than 500 species of animals, birds and insects and a living collection of over 300 exotic orchid species. The museum exhibits artefacts of the ancient Palaiyar tribe’s people whose descendants still live in these hills.

Your visit here will be part creepy, part informative. But it’s worth a peek just to see the photos of solemn priests with huge snakes draped around them. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kodaikanal itinerary 2 days.

  • Wonderful place which can truly be mentioned as Museum. I was there is this Museum some 25 years back as a child. So amazing to see the changes after a half century. The Museum is well maintained with varieties of real animals, birds, reptiles and insects. Also we have variety of stones, skeletons, coins and etc to see and enjoy it. We are so fortunate to see the rare Kurinji Flowers that blossoms once in 12 years, i enjoyed every bit and pieces in this Museum. Well maintenance from Sacred Heart college administration.

  • This museum is a surprise package. From the look of it, this is in a very small space. But, there is a huge collection of old animal remains. Looks like the products of experiments of biology students of the college. The collection is there for over hundred years. Huge variety of insects, birds, animals wild animals, reptiles and even human remains are preserved and made look real. This is very surprising for adults and enjoyable for kids. Worth a visit

  • On display are an awesome collections of different species of birds insects reptiles stones coins of various nations etc. It must have been pains taking efforts by the Jesuits. My salute to them. The place needs proper maintenance. The labeled names against each specimen are faded over the years. Some of them are dusty. It's a must visit place if you are a science or history student. The entrance fees are very nominal. The supervisor at the desk explains in brief about these collections.
