Learn the secret histories, ancient myths, and proud traditions of Kerala at Kerala Folklore Museum, an original and varied cultural heritage institution.

Folklore Museum aims to provide art education to the students and helping to provide visual and academic knowledge to the art lovers, researchers and travelers from all over the world. Folklore museum is the only architectural museum in Kerala and the treasure trove of stone, wood and bronze sculptures, ancient terracotta, stone Age objects, jewellery, paintings, oil lamps, musical instruments, tribal and folk art, wood works, utensils, masks and traditional art forms etc. these are around 4000 artifacts from tiny to large size on display. This ethnic museum is the essence of the life and culture of the common man over the past 1000 years. This Unique museum is the best example of traditional Kerala architecture. The structure is made of wood, laterite stone and clay tiles. Museum occupies the largest ethnic collections of more than 6000 art works.
This place is family built and owned which is amazing. When you first arrive youll see the beautiful construction of the building. Just beware there is a small fee to pay if you want to take pictures (it's worth it) because when you walk in there's so many things from earlier centuries. I thought to myself "this is what a museum should look like" it's a great experience and you walk through the different levels of the building. At the top you can actually purchase jewelry, antiques/artifacts. The staff is very friendly and helpful if you have any questions.
