The trip to Munnar would not be complete without a visit to Kannan Devan Tea Museum... It would be a wonderful experience to know about the Muthuvan tribes who helped pioneer the history of tea plantations in India..

This museum is quite conveniently located in Munnar, not far from the town square. One gets to know about the history of tea plantation activity in Munnar through a short documentary first.

they will charge you 125/- per person to show documentary of their products then they will force you attend a session of 15 minutes where the person will explain you benefits of green tea and they will simply try to sell their products to you. Instead of naming it as a museum they should call it promotional office :)

The best bit about this museum is the colonial era photographs and details that document the history of this plantation, but there's also a factory area where you can see it being processed. And the surrounding tea plantations are worth a wander around as well.

This is interesting tea museum where we can see stages of tea manufacturing. We enjoy tea everyday and this museum gives insights of making the same. Old machines are on display and guide explains different processes. Good quality video of how tea entered in India and planted here is equally interesting.

It was a bit going through history, from the early start of the planting until today supported by all the historical items on display. Very interesting the processing of tea and in the end the sampling or buying of tea.....
