Nothing much to see here, place is located in a lane. Some old artifacts are kept here but not maintained properly. The place is smelly with bird droppings.

Museum made of old church of 1940. Church consists of wooden idols. Preventing visit is good as you can enjoy the park opposite to church.

The museum is a small one in the main hall of the erstwhile St Thomas Church. Not many exhibits are found. The small models / pictures of the earlier Priests are there. It takes only 15 minutes to go around . The maintenance of the steps and the garden may be better.

Reaching there revealed that the St. Thomas Church was converted into a museum in 1992 and wooden artifacts inside are over 400 years old. So far, so good. It's not always you get to witness historic artifacts of... More

A relic which has not been maintained in time. Though located on a hill & along a very characteristic pavered Street running all along the church , it fails to draw the crowd as it is musty & dark. It can certainly do with some renovation.

Please do not visit the museum if you are short of time . It is very poorly maintained . The only good point is the beautiful landscape . The museum per se can be easily skipped .
