  • Very nice concept, it's a 100+ years old museum which is maintained by restoration team from Chennai. It has over 300+ species of animals and their bones, skin, skulls, skeletons and more. Also they've collected different things from different eras in the history. It was a place to remember. It has a very minimal entry fee of Rs.30/adult where 20 is donated to a children's home behind the museum and 10 is used for the maintaining the place. It didn't felt commercial at all, I felt like I'm doing something good for visiting here and still getting the best knowledge and experience. It's a must visit, please keep it in your itinerary.
