The Museum of Signatures would come up in a year time. The location of the museum will be inside Vyloppilli Samskriti Bhavan. The State Government agreed to the proposal of the Department.

The department has nearly 200 signatures in its collection, right from Gandhiji’s to Kamal Hassan’s. It has also collected signatures from guests to the state like Nobel laureates.

Signatures of personalities from various walks of social life have been collected so far under one of its prestigious project which was kicked off during the LDF Government’s time by poet O N V Kurup.

The highlight of the museum is that the authority have conceptualised it as a movable gallery. The specimens or the whole gallery could be moved to another gallery or hall without tampering the contents.
