75 rupees to get in, which isn't anything by Western prices but was considerably more than some much better attractions we visited in India.

Its interesting to see the mechanisms and machinery used to procss and make tea. There is something of an outlet shop, rather than 'gift shop' to pick up nice tea souvenirs. You get a small paper cup of fairly bad tea at the end of the tour. Some interesting furniture and memorabilia left over from the British involvement in this area and you certainly get a sense of how it all works.

Certianly worth a visit if you haven't been anywhere like this before, but we were a little underwhelmed.

It is the only way to get some idea of how tea is processed. Very touristy and busy place though. You get a free cup of masala tea, nice!

Entry ticket for an Adult was 75 rs.. which I feel little costly for what they have inside.. Ooty had a best one and the ticket was only 15 rs. they had set up a portion of Tea plants to take photos between them.. and then again. its bit crowded in season times...

It is a small miniature factory does not give feeling of real factory. The 10 minute talk about how tea is processed was good and informative.

First impression itself is shabby! They ask you to collect your complimentary tea before entering the museum. The tea that you get is from the machine you usually have in your workplace... and I had to just throw that away.... As you enter the cramped museum... You quickly realise that it's just waste of time! But yes, you gain some knowledge of how tea is made. Hope Tata's show the way by building something like what Napa Valley is for wine...
