This place is full of people. Though they show various stages of tea processing, it would not interest all. They could have made this place more interesting by introducing tea tasting sessions. You don't really get enough for the price you pay. Its more of a marketing tactic of the company. If you really wanna kill time, please go there.

Its a must visit place for tea lovers and who wish to know the advantages of tea or how to drink Tea. The 15 minute informative by the plant official is not to be missed , He is too good and has great knowledge. Tea served there is awesome too.

The place looks small unlike a museum and 80 rupees entry charge is not justified. Once inside you get to know the history of tea which is good. You can also buy different varieties of tea after the movie slow. Knowing about tea is good if you have time to do so. Good option if you come with family, you... More

If you are looking to kill time; clicking photos and knowing little more about tea, this is the place for you. Grab a free cup of tea, go through the museum, listen how the guide amazes you about the benefits of green tea. There is ongonig production of tea you can see if it interests you. The good thing is... More

Great place to know the history of tea and tea making process. They also sell different kind of genuine tea there, which you can hardly find anywhere else in India. I loved the Green tea available there, I am using it since then

the museum has a picture gallery of the pre-independence time, depicting the life and evolution of the practice of growing tea in munnar. They also show a documentary whoch is quite informative. The best part in this museum is when a local worker gathers everyone in a room and explains how green tea is beneficial for our health, was indeed... More

This tea plantation was once owned by TATA, now it's a cooperative, so you watch the video which is interesting but a bit like a corporate brainwashing video about how wonderful they were to their staff etc! It's about 35 mins too long! The demo tea factory is interesting as they show how they make tea in about 40 mins... More

For Rs.80 per adult the tour is well worth the trip (should cost you no more than Rs.40 in an autorickshaw to get there - and it's a pleasant walk back down the hill) The museum part itself is sparse but the man giving the tour - who apparently manages the place - was very knowledgeable and jovial. He knows... More
