The Arrakkal Museum is a museum dedicated to the Arakkal family, the only Muslim royal family in Kerala, South India. The museum is actually a section of the Arakkalkettu(Arakkal Royal Palace). The durbar hall section of the palace has been converted into a museum by the Government of Kerala.

The museum is not bad. The entry fee is 20 per adult. But there is nothing much to see there. There is lots of historical things there. It will be a very good idea if one brings children to see this museum. I think it's apt to bring children here.
Its okay type. Its museum of a kannur ruling family. Not exactly kingdom. Interestingly Muslim family, that too so many years ago. You will get a feeling of how Indian states were ruled how they were slowly captured by Portuguese dutch and eventually British. The description says the family is getting royalty even now. M not sure.
