Kumarakom is a backwater paradise, cruising and water sports are the highlights in the place. But if you are keen on looking at some museums around the place, there is a unique and creative exhibition that you could look at:




  • Bay Island Driftwood Museum


Your next destination in Kumarakom can be Bay Island Driftwood Museum. This is a colossal exhibition of driftwood articles in a unique and contemporary fashion. There are
root sculptures in an array of designs and shapes for you to glance at. Story goes that long ago a school teacher picked up the habit of randomly collecting driftwood pieces brought by the sea to the shore. With each cyclone the sea brought along ancient trees and roots and left behind its loot on the shores. These pieces were gathered, cleaned and shaped to give them creative forms – birds, fish, animals. This process of developing the plundered goods brought in by the Bay of Bengal is on display at this museum for you to see.


Timings: 10 am to 1 pm, 1.30 pm to 6 pm everyday except Sunday: 12.30 pm to 6 pm. (Monday holiday)

Entry: by pass


Address: Chakranpadi (Near Lakshmi Hotel & Resort)

Kumarakom North

Kottayam

Kerala

Telephone: +91-481-2525634

This is a one of its kind museum makes up for the lack of art galleries and museums in the entire Kumarakom region.
