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.

We were contemplating visiting this museum. But we were so glad we did visit it.. not a massive museum but the collection and information is just so crisp n amazing! Museum has a vast display of repltiles, insects, birds n few animals. My child thoroughly enjoyed it and so did we.
Must visit for all kids and interested adults. This place is filled with passion of a biologist . Has vast collection of skeletons and remnants of most fauna and floura of Western ghats. I was marvelled by his interest and perseverance in gathering these things over 50 years. My kid loved this place more than any place in kodaikanal. Would definitely revisit if I come here again.
Its is an awesome experience... It is well maintained by Sacred Heart College Administration. The entire building is very neat and clean and items are displayed systematically. Well preserved real animals wide range of birds, insects, reptiles, skeletons, various stages of human embryo from feotus to maturity different types of butterflies, moths, insects, old coins, various precious stones. The museum room is not very large in size but it is well maintained. There is an entry fee and camera fee for the visitors. The museum is open all the day from 9am to 6pm....
