Ayurveda implies the Science of Life, as ‘Ayur’ means ‘longevity’ or ‘life’ and Veda connotes ‘knowledge’ or ‘science’. A system of holistic medicine, it is a striking paradigm of the perfect harmony between Man and Nature and further an intrinsic part of Indian culture and the oldest form of health care in the whole world. 
       The Museum, the first of its kind in the history of Ayurveda, narrates the story of evolution through a slew of media including artifacts, sculptures, scriptures and pictures. A 3D gallery is an added attraction to showcase the developments in the manufacturing of Ayurvedic medicines and treatment techniques evolved over the ages. Further, this will enable the visitor to appreciate how the continuity of tradition is preserved even in the contemporary scenario against the backdrop of technological innovations and modernization. The footnotes of each exhibit are self –explanatory and provide a wealth of information.

        The foundation stone for the museum was laid by Matha Amruthanandamayi on 12 April 2005 and opened to the public by the former president of India, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam on 27 December 2013. The museum is also a memorial of the Centenary celebrations of the founder of Vaidyaratnam, Sri. E. T. Neelakandan Mooss, who himself is a living legend of Ayurveda in India.
The Museum owes much to the rich and varied collections of manuscripts, books and documents in the Library, an immortal contribution of the forebears of Ashtavaidyan Eledath Thaikkattu Moos family including Ashtavaidyan Vaidyaratnam E T Narayanan Mooss, Ashtavaidyan Padmashree E. T. Neelakandhan Mooss and also the present head of the Vaidyaratnam Group Ashtavaidyan Padmabhooshan E T Narayanan Mooss. The unique project is a tribute to these venerated supremos of Ayurveda.
