  • Earlier the home of Kalam is now a super mart cum museum. The entire place is commercialized now with sea shell and grocery stuff, however, museum is worth the watch. Starts at 8am till 5pm, museum has everything to say about the life of Dr. Kalam, from his childhood to his education from primary to becoming a scientist. Museum also have some of his books, which can choose to buy. I like the place a lot and spent most of my day in it to know more about Dr. Kalam and trust me my 1st Jan 2018, started really well
  • The place where our great man lived. A great scientist, more over a great human. His belongings and works were kept at this place for the public. Please try to take time to visit this place. You will see his childhood photos, his books, his used things among other collections.
  • It's an honor for visiting this place. It's not just a ordinary place . The legend.. The President .. The teacher .. The father of missiles ... The true inspiration.. The Proud of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam once lived here. What else reason you need to visit this place . Just being there is enough to salute our true leader.
  • There is no mention of a lunch break there. But his house was closed for 1.5 hour s from 1:30 to 3:00 PM. The top floor is transformed into a shop. But any way it is a place of worship for every student..
  • Kalam's house is filled with his personal possessions of books, medals, trophies, documents and other kit. Various banners and posters depicting his achievements are hung. The home has good lighting and security. Tourist can go and have a look around freely. Top floor has a business selling seashells, fashion accessory and other sorts. Photography is not allowed.
