A must visit place at Nilambur if you wish to know more about Teak plantations and peculiarities of its wood. Average display but it's sad to see nothing mentioned near large picture displayed - Mr. Chathu Menon whom instrumental in planting the trees there. It also houses well displayed wild orchids.
