Kerala Folklore Museum Tours

The Kerala Folklore Museum opened to the public in 2009 as a space to showcase the cultural and artistic heritage of the southern Indian state. The 4,000-item collection spans three floors, each exhibiting a different architectural style, Malabar, Kochi and Travancore. The various items on display throughout center on art and dance and include masks, costumes, musical instruments, jewelry, sculptures, Stone Age artifacts and ancient astrological manuscripts.

In the evenings, a theater on the top floor hosts various cultural performances ranging from traditional dance to Kerala-style martial arts.

Practical Info
