A great place to learn about the history of Cochin. The person at the ticket counter was really interesting and explained us the difference between Kochi and cochin. He also explained us all the details with great patience and interest. The museum also has ruins of an old fort and some great pictures that depict the old cochin region. A must visit place for history lovers. Entry fees : Rs20 Rs.

Go there if you have nothing else to do. Not much in terms of theme or artefacts or historical significance. It's a random collection of artefacts of the Portuguese presence in the area with no sequence of events. And, one can be forgiven for thinking that the remains of the "fort" below the building as a hoax. The adjoining gardens and the Bishop's house are better photo-op spots !

The Indo-Portuguese Museum is located in the heart of the Old City of Fort Kochi, on the outskirts of Cochin or also called: Kochi.

This is a small yet very interesting museum and the building dates back to early 1500’s.

The main building shares this tree filled compound with the current Bishop’s Residence. Both building are well preserved.

The entrance fee is only 100 INR per person which in the current Indian exchange rate is only: $1.40 USD.

In the basement of the museum are the original foundations of the original structure can be viewed. The main floor, of this interesting museum, displays many original artifacts and each relic is clearly illustrated in several languages.

I found this Indo-Portuguese Museum was a very interesting visit and I suggest anyone visiting Fort Kochi must stop by to view its’ interesting contents.

its the bishop house
over the remains of the old fort
not so interesting ... unless you have some religious interest in catholics I guess ... I thought it was a museum , indo-portugese, but found out it wasn't.
The visit didn't go in vain as we got to see the remains of the fort in the basement

This afternoon we walked into the museum and were astonished by the collection and the information provided on Indo Portuguese history .A lot of work has gone on in collecting items ,all of them from churches .The entry ticket is Rs.25 per person ,however you must try and meet Joseph the manager/caretaker during work hours hes a wealth of knowledge .The place has clean washrooms also ! Must do while in Fort Kochi

Joseph is a wonderful host of this museum. It holds very interesting artifacts but it was our chats with Joseph that made this a hidden gem.

This small museum in the grounds of the Bishop's palace contains - mainly - catholic church artefacts. The story of the Portuguese in Kochi doesn't quite come to life here.
The cellar of the building has remains that are reputed to be from the original fort.
Unless particularly interested in religious artefacts, it'll take less than half an hour to visit the museum.

A rather small but interesting museum showing objects from the time when the Portuguese exercised a great influence in Fort Kochi. The textual information is very limited. But on the other hand, there are very helpful guides who take care of you and your questions. Without the guides, the visit to the museum had not been so valuable.

It will take you at most 15 min to see everything in this museum. But still worth a look. Not much else to say - I came, I saw then I left. 40 rupees ok

We really enjoyed our visit to this museum..it is small but well presented and hour or two is perfect to wander around.The curator spoke excellent english and was delighted to show us artefacts that we may have overlooked..ie the steps down to the museum are glass sided and reveal the early foundation of the fort foundation..
