It houses exhibits and antiques relating to a very remote past of our country in chronological sequence. It highlights the important landmarks in the socio-political, religious and cultural history of Kerala, India and World at large.Dr.Sr. Suma Rose and Dr.SheelaIrinJayanthi . J visited National Museum, New Delhi and based on the information collected and some other major Museums, the Heritage Museum was set up. All the faculty members of the Department of History rendered commendable work in developing the Assumption Heritage Museum. The modification of the Museum was done in 2013.

On all Wednesdays the museum is kept open for the students of the college. The students of different departments gather valuable information on Indian history, culture and heritage from their visit to the museum. Eminent archaeologists, museum designers, historians and academicians also visited the museum from time to time and gave their valuable suggestions. Tourists from different parts of the world and students from neighbouring schools and from other states also visited the museum. This gives them a more clear idea about history from ancient to modern.
