Amazing place although most people are not aware of it. During our visit we asked a traffic policeman about the place and he told us there is no such place in OOty..But after reaching there we found the place very good. Surprised, why the management is not promoting this place.

Not much to see here as its a museum which talks more about the kinds of bees and their nests etc. If you have spare time you can go but its bit boring place to be at. I wasted my money in paying high entrance fees they charge. I would say you can skip this place and rather go see... More

This is a very small museum. Good for those interested in bees and honey . We could not see the audiovisual show. But they have a good collection of honey, Toda work and other articles.

We found this museum very interesting whereas we went there without any big interest. It's simple but you can learn a lot about the bee of south India, and you will be surprised to see how local people harvest. Time to spend : 1h to 1h30

this place happened to be quite close to our hotel (Taj Savoy) so we dropped in and spent an hour here. Quite unique and worth the ticket price. you can learn a lot about the bees and honey stuff here. the AV room wasn't working when we went, but I guess they have good things to show about bee culture....
