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.

Very extensive and interesting collection. If you spend time looking at item by item, it can easily take over an hour. Minus one star as sometimes I felt there isn’t much background info/explanation - as foreigner who is unfamiliar with Kerala culture and history, I would appreciate some short intro

Astonished building. So many original pieces that seeing all details may take a whole day. It's a private place, so the prices and maintenance should not be compared with a tax-paid one, which in a way make this place even more special. Grateful for the art educational experience.
