Museum

Directorate of Lighthouses and Lightships established a Heritage Lighthouse Maritime Museum at Muttom point on 19th November, 2017. The museum is set to pass valuable information about the history of navigation, trade and evolution of lights and lighthouses. While replicas of Sailing ships, steamers, Naval and Coast guard ships provide information about the vessels in the past, different types of illuminants used in lighthouses from Wick lamps to LED lights will teach about the evolution of lamps. The master attraction of the museum is the 1st order optic brought from Vengurla Rock lighthouse. It gives a chance to know about this light that saved the vessels from crashing on submerged rocks strewn around Vengurla and the sufferings and deaths faced by light keepers on that dangerous rock in mid sea, to keep the light uninterrupted. Museum is established in a building which is more than 100 years old.
