Kerala Folklore Theatre Museum is a popular museum in Thevara in Ernakulam. This multi-storey building was set up in the year 2009 as a non-profit organisation to acquaint visitors with the rich heritage of Kerala. Founded by George Thaliath and his wife Annie George, this museum was built by 62 skilled and proficient workers over a span of seven years.

The museum complex exhibits a melange of three prominent styles of architecture, namely the Malabar, Travancore and Cochin. It is replete with relics of the bygone era, like sculptures, costumes and musical instruments along with oldest Bibles collected from churches across the state.

At the entrance, you will notice the remnants of 16th century temples of Tamil Nadu, fabulous wooden carvings gathered from across Kerala and a beautiful manichitratazhu - a traditional ornate door lock. There is also a theatre named Kalithattu, where you can enjoy folk art performances like Theyyam, Ottanthullal, Kathakali and Mohiniyattam. The second floor, known as Kanjadalam (lotus petal), is adorned with beautiful mural paintings.
