Museum is relatively small, 4 or so rooms, one in which you watch an actually fairly good video about the history of the plantations and factory. Then you get to look at the tea making process in a factory set up, the gift shop (selling of course, tea) and lastly a free cup of tea! Well worth it if you're... More

I was taken to the museum to learn about the plantations. One is escorted into the movie hall where you see a 30 minute movie on the history. Fascinating. Of course Tata was involved early on. Very interesting the history; of course presented with the tourist in mind. Quickly ushered to where tourists buy the products. Worth doing.

This was one of the highlights of our 2 day visit to Munnar. Excellently run with full demonstration of the workings of a tea factory. Worth a visit.
