  • I loved this museum. The collection is simply brilliant. If you love museums, if you love to explore the past via artifacts, then this is one place that you just cannot miss. There are so many items that not a single patch of wall lies uncovered. Looking thoroughly through every item can take ages. A beautiful collection nonetheless. I had not expected a private museum to be this well collected.
  • Worth to visit this museum.. you can buy some items which is very unique. All days open. This is a private museum , and the owners are always available there to explain about the collections . All staffs are very polite and happy to help you... don't miss this place if you are planning to visit Cochin..
