There are several floors full of history and so many things to look at. It's hot in the museum and there are almost too many things to look at. Not at the things are in english.

The place has a vast number and variety of collections. The collections are very nice and has a rich history. The interior of the place is also very beautiful and suits the collections. There are gift shops inside as well.

The artifacts on display is simply great. Was told that one person has collected all these huge number of artifacts, displayed in three stories of the building. The guide explained in detail about each artifact. Must visit if interested in history of the South India.

Was expecting exhibits behind glass and something quite formal...Oh what a surprise. It was like an "Aladdins cave" of artefacts all grouped together on 3 floors. Very little was behind glass as it was open to view behind unobtrusive barriers. The staff were friendly and...More

It's Rs. 100/- per person. If you wish to use camera inside to take pictures, then you'll have to pay Rs. 100/- separately for this.
