Napier Museum, Trivandrum Reviews

  • This place is one stop destination for Museum, Zoo, Children’s Park and Nature Trailblazers. Zoo is open all days except Monday and public holidays from 10 am to 5 pm. The outer circle of the complex is exactly 800 metres which attracts jogging lovers during morning and evening hours. Owing to large quantity of greenery and public facilities such as restaurant, icecream parlour and washroom facilities, people feel convenient and enjoy irrespective of age group. During festivals and special occasions extra curricular activities, cultural shows and social work (like blood donation) use to take place here. It is indeed one of the most sought after public places of the town.

  • Where else would Trivandrum hangout. People usually choose this green park for jogging and walking exercises. Evenings are packed. Those who are interested in History can spend a whole day at the museum. Mostly people come here to sit and relax at lawns .

  • Went to zoo with family. Nice place to visit . There is white tiger which is the main attraction now . The ambulance is superb. It's great to have such a zoo within the city limit.

  • Contains great stuffs.. some of artifacts lack information due to the cost recurring in decoding the information... but its informative and helps us to get the knowledge about our ancient indian history

  • Lovely place holding many artifacts of southern indian dynasty. Many beautiful stone, metal, wood & ivory statues are displayed. There are also work from the orient that are displayed here.
