Cultural Museum

The cultural museum is a presentation of Kerala’s rich dance and cultural history in visual form. Each major dance form has its own space with a sculpted dancer with pointers showing each item of his/her intricate make up. A brief history of each dance form is also available.

One can also see a miniaturized Kerala Village representative of the pre 1930’s period, old artifacts and articles of daily use, original representations of the water wheel and different types of the farmers’ village hat made of Palmyra. Interestingly you would also find paintings dating back to the late 19th century in the museum. A large area of the museum showcases the dying arts like pottery making and handloom weaving.

Most interestingly, in the middle of the entire Museum is placed a Churlan Vallam, a traditional long country boat used for boat races.

The museum timings are from : 10.00 am – 05.00 pm.
