  • This museum is seems he the only Museum of the India tea. It deserves such a visit but do not expect to make major discoveries. Some pictures and furniture of the colonial era without interest, some machines that allow to understand the progression of the plantation to the cup of tea, explanations in broken English on how to make a good tea and whose objective is to sell a plastic bottle Chinese intended to infuse green tea and promote the Teas for sale on the plantation. If you like green tea, tea sold here is very good but you will find in Munnar of excellent green teas other plantations just as good and much cheaper.

  • The staff were very keen to answer all questions and show us whatever we wanted to see. The presentation was quick and informative thanks to the speaker. There are loads of items and photos that give a lot of information about the history of tea cultivation and the nearby areas. You need to spend quite a bit of time if you're going to go through all of it. Nice place worth visiting.
  • A must to visit place. Its run by TATA/Kannan Devan Plantations. They wrote the history of munnar with British empire. The 30 minutes documentary presented here shown the history of Munnar. Rare historical artifacts related to Munnar is preserved here. But don't trust 100% the guy who conducts a session about tea there,anyhow his session is very informative. Have a good time
  • The museum apart from showing a documentary and old photographs associated with tea plantation, also has a working demonstration of making of tea as we know it starting right from processing of green tea leaves after they are plucked. There is an entry fee of Rs. 95 per person. Inside one can also choose from a variety of tea for buying. one of the must see points in Munnar.
  • Good 30 min documentary about the companies running the plantations. Not enough about how the tea is produced. The items showed in the museum itself have not much interest. The factory could be nice if the guide explaining the process could speak an understandable english... the price is anyway too much (95 rs + 5 for a tiny cup of tea). The main problem is you still have to go there if you wanna learn a bit more about the tea after admiring those wonderful landscapes of tea gardens...
  • Should watch the 30 minute documentary film! and you will be convinced to drink green tea everyday after you visit this place.
