Archeological Museum Thrissur

The renowned Archaeological Museum is one of Thrissur's most scenic and historically significant locations. It was formerly housed in the Kollengode Palace structure but has since been transferred to the Shakthan Thampuran Palace. The Perumpadappu Swaroopam, Kochi's former ruling family, had their headquarters in this lovely structure, which is now home to some of the best murals in all of God's Own Country. The unique artifacts this location is home to, such as Veerakallu, temple models, olagrandhangal (manuscripts on dry palm leaves), and megaliths, become readily apparent the moment one steps inside.
