"Good place to visit"

Jun 28, 2016
It tells us about the ancient people tools. My children studied a lot from this. There was not a lot of people so we saw it slowly. When we went there was no electricity, so we experience all of that features, though it was good.

"Good one"

Jan 7, 2016
First you visit museum and then you visit Kanthanpara Waterfalls just 16 kms away . No need to visit Vythiri Lakes or Banasura Dam or Soochipara Waterfalls. You will just be travelling too much without any enjoyment.

"A good museum"

Jun 29, 2015
The collection in this museum is good. We can see some old things which were being used by the ancient people to hunt and also some tools which they were using for household purposes.
