We, a spanish family, were in this wonderful museum some days ago and was an astonishing experience due to the huge number of items in display (also the house is wonderful). We were very lucky because we met the widow and the son of Mr. George who took their time to explain the history to us of some artifacts. Also a very good place to buy interesting things.

I visited that museum. One of the best museum in Kerala. It was a dream of Late Honorable George Thaliath sir. Now look after by his Wife and children. They all are giving a great service for tourists. Prince Charles of England visited this museum in 2013. Visit to this museum is really worthy!

Hats off to the Museum curator for the collections and maintenance. It's a privately owned museum with exhibits that are too many for a small place they have. Hence it becomes difficult to get a grasp of the story behind the exhibits as you get overwhelmed by volume. They could try an audio tour for visors to understand historical facts better.
