The Archaeological Museum was until recently accommodated in the Thrissur Town Hall building. Now it has been shifted to the Kollengode Palace, an architectural delight. The building houses murals from all over Kerala and preserves a rare treasure of Veerakallu, temple models, ola grandhangal(manuscripts on dry palm leaves) and megaliths.
Veerakallu or herostones are engravings and sculptures of figures and weapons belonging to heroes of days gone by. Most were recovered from the forests of Wayanad and Thrissur.
10:00 am to 5:00 pm on all days except Mondays.
