I suppose if you have no idea about tea production, and will not be visiting a tea factory, then this might be better than nothing. But, being a museum, and the only one in the area, I'd expected it to be more than a few non functioning machines and a video. The price of admission is barely worth the free... More

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

When visiting Munnar you just have to visit here to find out all about tea - the planting, growing, picking and processing. I learned so much whilst here and am now totally enlightened about the whole process. There was an interesting short film followed by a talk by one very experienced employee who has convinced me how beneficial green tea... More

Very friendly and informative visit to the Tea Museum. The history of the Kannan Devan and in a way the history of Munnar was explained very nicely. The way an employee / employer mutual participation to run a successful business was very innovative. The retail outlet was very economical to buy various types of tea and other herbal products. I...

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.

Tea Museum has a very nice collection of pictures, old tools and machines of the tea factory. You can also watch the overall process of tea making, the KDHP guy will provide you with... More
