"Nice ancient museum"

3 months ago
The museum is quite close to Alkali Caves. The museum is well maintained, clean and has a fairly good collection of things. All of them are well documented written in English and easily understandable.
However this museum has limited artifacts on display. It should try to house much more so that kids can get a feeling of them and probably connect to ancient history which they ..
Seeing the museum will take a time of 30 to 45 minutes .. The staff is very cooperative

"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.

"Good speed boating!"

Jun 20, 2014
Wonderful experience with speed boating and its worth waiting in the long ticket queue. Good natural landscapes around. Jeep rides are included in the tickets. So, no need to walk to the dam.
