One of the most popular museums in Kerala, Archaeological Museum has a significant collection of ancient artefacts and weapons used in the primitive days. Among all the belongings in this historical abode, the life-sized structures, models of ancient temples, and manuscripts written on palm leaves called ‘Olagrandhangal’ are some of the prized-possessions.
