The ‘RRW-Impact Group’ discussed the impact that a Training Museum, presumably first of its kind in Asia, as an aid to Training/Learning. It is decided that the museum will have materials, artifacts, tools, equipment, photographs, a documentary film, and other exhibits of value.  Also a docu-feature film is planned to start from the beginning of training in Kerala, before the establishment of the ‘Clerks Training School’ and after. It was also decided that the Training Museum will be housed in the ground floor of Barton Hill Bungalow. The inauguration of the Training Museum, the first of its kind in India was done on Keralappiravi Day (1st November 2017) at 12.30 noon at Barton Bungalow, Barton Hill Campus of IMG Thiruvananthapuram.
