I'm really not big on museums but this one is well worth a visit, The Tata history video which is shown actually turns out to be really interesting and afterwards, the guide takes you through the tea making process before, inevitably, ending up at the shop. All in all, I was very glad that I went and would definitely recommend.

Documentry movie talks about the history of tea plantation at Munnar. A good watch. Liked the process of tea making. But the guide, instead of taking us thru the process of tea making, was speaking on the advantages of green tea. Felt it was more of a marketing technique. But over all a good exprience as somebody took the initiative... More

The museum highlights the method of tea preparation - from the tea gardens to the tea prepared in a cup. The various steps in tea preparation are demonstrated well. There is a shop also within the museum which sells various products although bit more expensive than you find in the local shops in town. Gaming activities are provided for the... More

I have been to tea factory before in Ooty. What I found new is the 1/2hr video they show on the history of tea gardens of Munnar. It is followed by one very informative lecture on the benefits of green tea, which, I am sure many of us don't know. Overall it was a very good experience.

Very interesting to discover how tea is grown, harvested and processed. The company that runs the museum is a workers cooperative and runs a lot of far thinking social programmes.

They show a short film which traces the journey of the Munnar tea plantations from the days of Finlay to the present day when it is managed and owned by the workers. Then you are shown the process of team manufacturing. They also have a retail outlet from where you can buy tea and other products (spices, chocolates, jams) made... More

After an informative video about the origins of the plantation, we were taken round the factory and shown the various stages of processing the tea leaves after picking. It was most interesting and we learnt a great deal about the history of the place and the types of machinery they still use.
