They have preserved this place well. And best part is learning the process of how tea leaves are turned into granules. Pretty interesting

The museum is amidst tea gardens and the view from it is amazing. The documentary on high ranges will inform you. A stand up speech on tea will inform you further. After all the information overload, you will get to see the conveyor belt which will end pretty quickly. Rest of it is just shops. Bit of a let down... More

A lecture given by one gentleman about green tea was good&authentic the same time his over superiority complex is not a good one. Documentary was good but many people went out in the middle which should not be allowed They should give give at least one cup of tea free of cost after chàrging 80 RS for one ticket

The tea museum is very near to main city, and it is a must visit to know about the history of munnar and tea. Initially there would be documentary screening about the history of Munnar. To my surprise half the people left in the middle of the documentary. The 30 min documentary is the best source to know the History... More

2hrs visit is enough. Tea Manufacturing process is explained in a miniature running setup. Small briefing on types of tea is told in the beginning. Documentary is interesting to see how munnar tea plantation started. If you are really interested to understand tea manufacturing process visit Kolukkumalai Tea factory, They explain on running factory with much attention.

Given Munnar is full of Tea estates, a tea museum which can demonstrate actual production of tea is an apt addition to attractions in Munnar. It's a place worth visiting to see, understand how tea is processed and other historical facts.

Very good attraction. The person explaining the process and importance of tea was bit arrogant and was taunting but the information was too good to miss. Watching the documentary was even more informative. Watching old instruments like telephone - typewriters etc was quite a fun for kids. Good Place to visit.
