  • The International Coir Museum is established for showcasing the coir industry over the ages with the latest developments which has brought in a revolution. The museum also show cases the traditional processes and development of coir industry, including retting and fibre extraction, advent of mechanization in coir sector etc. A short video film takes the visitors through the world of coir over the ages and gives information on the origin and growth of the industry and the latest developments made through research and development. This will give sweet memories on coir industry. There is a souvenir shop attached to the Museum where visitors can have the joy of SHOPPING a wide range of coir handicrafts, coir doormats, coir ornaments etc.
  • Must visit. Got to know the importance of coir. The lady guide guided me throughout the museum. It is surely one of the best museums in India. Unique and specific.
  • Unique place. Very few places where one might be able to gather some information about coir processing and products derived from it. The employee accompanying and explaining does it in a wonderful manner. Worth a visit if you are in vicinity.
  • A guide will walk you through the process of making coir and different products. You also get to see different machines used for the same and many sample items. The display is very well organized and interesting. It will surely temp you into buying some souvenir made of coir! 🙂
  • Great place, worth seeing, didn't know that coir had this many uses. They played the demonstration video which lasted for 20 minutes. Overall u can spent 40mts to 1.5 hrs depending upon ones taste and interest in these kind of topics. The place is well maintained. We will be lead through the various processes through which coir is converted to useful products. Historic artifacts also displayed at places. Camera is charged. As the museum is located in the highway, we parked at the highway side.
