This is not your usual ‘museum’. At least, not from the outside. It isn’t your usual imposing heritage structure screaming ‘history’… this one’s a house in a bylane off the busy Kaliamman Koil Street in Virugambakkam. Well, it’s actually D Hemchandra Rao’s home that we walk into.
A historian by passion, Rao recently decided to throw open his house for those interested to come and check out his maritime collection.
