It is located inside Trivandrum Zoo complex at Palayam , the heart of Trivandrum considered one of the finest architectural wonder in Trivandrum..the museum is abundant with fine collection of sculptures, paintings and musical instruments. One can witness Kerala's rich cultural heritage here.

Napier museum is a small museum inside Zoo complex. Of interest is temple rath and Balinese shadow dancing cut out. Ticket counter is at the building and photography is not allowed.

Absolutely superb! Wonderful collection of priceless objects in a wonderful building -- and with a non-discriminatory, non-prejudicial pricing scheme (10 Rupees for all visitors, irrespective of race or national origin). What a pleasure to see an equitable and respectful ticketing system here in India!
