  • A bit out of the usual tourist area. The modern Indian art plus the displays and commentary depicting the history of Kerala make it worth the journey.  more »
  • A must see place in heart of city, near to edappally toll, calm and quiet place to relax, gallery visit is another attraction  more »
  • The place has a entry fee too much for locals to just causally enter. Not saying the place isn't any beautiful, but dissatisfied but the offer for ₹150. Not much to see inside, for a causal like me. Maybe if you are a history enthusiast you might find statues and sculptures significant. Me, was not enchanted to intrigued by some of the artifacts. But there are still interesting peices inside, no to mention the ladies that visit are totally good locking and interesting.
  • An amazing place to get knowledge of kerala history, especially about the rulers. Also a rare collection of original paintings are also available. Easy to reach. Calm and quiet atmosphere. Helpful staff members. Neat and tidy. Admission fee is high as compared to other museums. Rs.150 per person. But still it worths. Loved it.
