Bay Island Driftwood Museum is situated in the Kumarakom village, at a distance of around 14 km from Kottayam. The museum displays a wide collection of driftwood sculptures, modern artefacts and root sculptures of various shapes and designs. It was constructed by Raji Punnoose, proprietor and curator, who won an award by the Limca Book of Records in 2001. The museum has various artefacts developed by a school teacher during her tenure in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago. She collected a wide variety of driftwood, twisted tree trunks, stumps and roots from the banks of the Bay of Bengal and transformed these into beautiful art pieces. Some of the wood pieces and roots are considered to be centuries old. These pieces and roots are subjected to cleansing, dead parts removal, scraping and trimming.
