Vaidyaratnam Ayurveda Museum at Thaikkattussery in Thrissur has recently introduced a special package for school students called School@Ayurveda Museum, to impart them with a better understanding on Ayurveda principles, practice and tradition.

The three hour programme in the Ayurveda museum includes a one hour presentation on Ayurveda tradition of India/Kerala, daily routine and diet prescribed in Ayurveda for a healthy living, ethnic herbs and its applications, the importance of Kavu, the traditional sacred groves of Kerala etc. Then there is a visit to the museum and the herbs garden which has 300 plus rare and endangered herbal plant species. According to Mr. Anil Kumar, the curator of the museum, the programme which started in the month of November in 2014 has received much appreciation and recognition that many students groups from about sixty schools in and around Thrissur have already visited the museum. “Generally, most of the people misunderstand Ayurveda as just oil massage and this programme has helped the new generation to understand the real value of Ayurveda as a science of living” he added.

The Vaidyaratnam Ayurveda Museum, promoted by Vaidyaratnam group was opened in December 2013. The museum narrates the story of evolution of Ayurveda through a slew of collections that include artifacts, sculptures, scriptures, and pictures. The museum will also help a visitor to understand how the continuity of tradition is preserved even in the contemporary scenario against the backdrop of technological innovations and modernization. School @Ayurveda is a special package for students with subsidized fee.
