It is a great place to visit. Gives you history about tea in India. The guide who spoke about different types of tea and their benifits was great . He spoke with great passion. Was very informative . I would love to visit this place again.

I like the museum because it has such a good tea smell all around that it is just irresistible. They have good video on history and one of the senior member told us so much about drinking the green tea . I like the tour here.

This museum is an excellent place to learn about teas and tea making process. They show all the steps in making tea and also sell different variety of teas. We bought some as gifts for family and friends. The fee for entrance was nominal and has tea gardens in the surrounding.

Except of the movie which gave information about the tea history of the area, the museum is not informative enough about the production of tea. The only lively place was the shop at the end, packed with indians. No worries if you decide to skip it.

I have been to a tea factory earlier in Ooty. I found the Kannan Devan Tea Museum highly commercialized. The entry ticket is exorbitantly priced as compared to other tea factories. This place has displaced few ancient tea processing equipments thus calling it a museum. The only good thing was the documentary about Munnar and how the tea plantation was... More
