Compare to many other museums, it is an average place to visit. But the positive side is that the entry is free and building premises is attractive with sufficient parking.

Such an odd, old-world feel to this place! Taxidermy is freaky but in this context it felt atmospheric. The best attraction I've seen in Trivandum! Definitely recommend this over Napier museum and the zoo.

At the entrance, you can find a big Dinosaur which is a great place to have pics. But it closes at 5 PM. The museum is good if you have energy left after visiting all adjoining places in the complex.
