#1 of 10 in Museums in Kochi (Cochin)
Learn the secret histories, ancient myths, and proud traditions of Kerala at Kerala Folklore Museum, an original and varied cultural heritage institution. Started in 2009 as a nonprofit organization by a husband-and-wife team, the museum collects artifacts from across the state and throughout the centuries. The resulting narrative includes everything from Stone Age utensils to 20th-century musical instruments. Take a moment to appreciate the historical building itself--a composite of remnants from a 16th-century temple, wooden carvings from across the state, and parts of other traditional buildings.

  • Contains a lot of stuff historically important. Excellent staff and service. Needs better arrangement and organizing of the exhibits. as too much stuff has been cramped and exhibited in 3floors. - No elevator or ramp. - There also exists a Shop inside on the upper floor.
  • We absolutely loved this museum, the family who own it and their staff are so friendly and informative. The artifacts are beautifully displayed and the building itself is an architectural wonder. You must visit!
  • This place is great for indoor dance program. Art gallery and other art performance. Display of antique statues n sculptures are the main attraction here..
  • I was awestruck when I entered the museum. It was like entering a treasure filled cave. Each artefact gives a glimpse of our heritage. A few r beyond any expressions. Thanks to Mr n Mrs Joseph for conserving our rich heritage. Because of them I could see and know many age old art culture and the talents of heritage India.
  • This is a total waste of ₹100 for entry ₹100 for photography(mobile or camera). Why?? 1. Private property 2. No any planning of things just put them everywhere 3. NO ANY EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE OF VISITING! (These things are not important for any SCHOOL/COLLEGE/JOB preparation! 4. Just old paintings and some leftover Ancient items with no importance 5. There are shops inside with 10X more price from outside I visited Kerala From Delhi and just gone as very less second chance but If you are Okay with above mentioned points you should visit. *National Museum (Delhi) is a very Great and Important museum with lots of Important info that you will find in textbooks of college/schools and much more ,if you have a chance IT IS A MUST VISIT and require whole day.....also ENTRY FEE 30/- and free for Students *
