About the Museum

A visit to the town of Edapally in Kochi is incomplete without visiting the Museum of Kerala History which showcases the cultural history of God’s Own Land Kerala and tells us about the people who made history in Kerala. A museum full of statues, paintings, and sculptures, the Museum of Kerala History successfully unravels the history of Kerala, right from the Neolithic era to the modern age, and was established in 1984.

Upon entering the Kerala History Museum, the first thing that grabs the attention is the massive statue of Sage Parasurama who is believed to have created Kerala by reclaiming land from the seas. There are over 90 life-size statues of famous personalities from Kerala, relics, and artifacts of royalty, and those from the ordinary ancient households on display. Other exhibits include a mural painting of about 25 feet long illustrating a scene from the Sanskrit drama Shakunthalam by Kalidas which is an eye-catching piece of art with meticulous details and vibrant colors. There are numerous other exhibits displayed in the museum that are distinguished under different sections:
