If you want to delve deep into Kerala's local culture and heritage, no other place would be as good as the Folklore Museum. The gates will remain open from 9:30 AM to 7 PM, so do plan your visit accordingly. Here, you can explore some of the precious artifacts of Kerala, especially those belonging to the native tribes and folk people. It was opened to the public in 2009 and has since been an exhibit of traditions and heritage. Its architecture exudes the Malabar vibes, which are hard to resist. From different costume sculptures to Kathakali masks, ornaments, and others, this museum has a lot to see. Also, you will be surprised by the famous manichitrathazhu, which is nothing but a traditional door lock used explicitly in Kerala. So, consider including it in your list of places to see in Kochi.
