As a mission to preserve the excavated artefacts and unearthed relics from different parts of the wayanad district, and with the help of the state Archaeology Department, a museum was established at Ambalavayal, the heritage museum.Situated about 12 km away from Sultan Bathery in Wayanad, The Ambalavayal Heritage Museum, is one of the largest and best-maintained archaeological museums in Kerala , and houses a rich collection of artefacts which stand in testimony of the fact that there had been an advanced civilisation which existed in the mountains of Wayanad. The articles on display are a fascination for the historian, the archaeologist and the ordinary man alike. A walk through the museum will take to the Stone Age or perhaps exhibits a miniature picture of that. Exhibits in the museum include many stone weapons, stone carvings, 14th to 16th century sculptures, potteries of Megalithic Age, hunting equipment, clay sculptures and other interesting artefacts. Idols made of hard and soft rocks, which were believed to be worshipped by the ancient people too can be seen in the museum.
The exhibits collected are preserved in four blocks – Veerasmruthi, Gothrasmruthi, Devasmruthi and Jeevanasmruthi. There is also a multi-media theatre near the Museum which offers a show for tourists. Due to some rare and unique collection of objects, it lures every class of travelers from researchers to honeymooners.
