Not worth the money - there was a very rude arrogant guide who tried to cram too many people into the room and tried to speak in several languages and totally lost the plot when people tried to leave as it was too boring.

Gave me a new perspective about Munnar and the local history and made me realize how inextricably how the place and history of tea in India is. The entrance fee to the museum is dirt cheap and we met a passionate guide in the museum who explained the processing of tea and the grading of it.. He was a green... More

The idea of a tour of tea museum is very good. But the tour for the tourists in the Kannan Devan Tea Museum is very badly managed. It is not streamlined. It is not systematic. It is chaotic.

Not to be missed. Gives you a comprehensive history of tea production over the years. Prepare to be lectured on how to make tea, and don't you dare disagree. Deli is packed with every tea imaginable at good prices. Drink some at the tea bar at 50r per cup.

Gives you a glimpse into the history of tea factories setting up in Munnar. They even have a 30 min documentary film and a demo of how tea is prepared. You can shop for various types of tea's after that. Visit once to know how it all started in Munnar

Our expectation was that this tea museum will have samples of all old machines and different types of teas, but apart from these they also showed a documentary on the history of the tea and other plantations in munnar followed by a live session on tea and also on the demo on how tea powder is prepared from tea leaves....

Worthless visit wasting almost 2 hours. Costly entry tickets. Rs. 80 per head for no reason. Boring video of on british history and tea. Have to buy a tea separately that could have been covered under entry tickets
