It was nice to visit Samundrika Marine Museum....beautiful...but the entrance fee is too exorbitant....price has to be reduced...comparatively it is too high for the tourist than visiting other places...with only one room showing corals..Rs. 50/- is too high........................

Yes, there is a souvenir shop inside and has all the local mementos like shells, jewellery, wooden items, t-shirts, decoration items. Being a government run store, it's also the most reasonably priced

It would not be advisable to visit museums with luggage. You may leave the same in the car. Surely you would have the car no and driver's mobile number.
