Museum of Kerala History, otherwise known as Madhavan Nayar Foundation, showcases the rich and diverse history of Kerala. Located at a distance of 10 Kilometres from the heart of Kochi, the museum is a great way to get the snapshot of the history of God’s own country. At the very entrance of the museum one will find a life-sized statue of Parashuram, the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. According to legends Kerala was originated from the sea when Parashuram threw his axe into the Arabian Sea. Right from the birth of the state to the modern era, the history of the state is captured within the four walls of the museum. The 2000 year old history of Kerala is brought into life by the famous light and sound show with all its grandeur. Whether you are historian or a kid, an hour long show is a sight that every traveler would love to cherish for the rest of their lives.
