This is located in the premises of Zoo. Here is a good collection of Antiques and historical items. Must Watch. The surrounding area of the building is well maintained as a park. evening time can be a wonderful experience here.

The museum does not have much information about the stuff they have. The museum building is nice. The art gallery which is very close to the museum is very nice and if I had to choose between the two I would certainly go to the art gallery.

It may not be the best museum but it is a place to visit for its equal entrance fees and interesting internal structures. It used to be a palace which was later donated to the government, so, it can be an interesting visit but you'll just need to lower your expectations for the exhibits.

One should visit Trivandrum city's and Kerala's priceless possession - The Napier Museum. Actually, visiting this great museum is much valuable and memorable than reading about it and seeing online videos. If you have any chance, don't miss seeing this place loaded with valuable antiques and priceless works of art. Enjoyed the museum every time i had been there...
