Kerala is home to some of the most surreal experiences in India, and there’s no doubt about it. All the tourist attractions make it the beauty that it is, and now the newly opened biodiversity museum in Kerala’s 19th century boathouse has added more fame to its glory.
Built in the 19th century-old Vallakadavu Boathouse in Trivandrum, this new biodiversity museum is the first of its kind in the country and has been recently opened to the public after its inauguration on June 5, 2018. An initiative of the Kerala State Biodiversity Board (KSSB) along with the Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment, the Kerala State Coastal Area Development Corporation, and the Kerala State Electronics Development Corporation Limited (Keltron), this museum is definitely a place you wouldn’t want to miss on your Kerala trip.
