This museum was recommended in the Lonely Planet guide, which has been hit and miss, but this time it was worth it. The museum consists of four floors of tea manufacturing machinery, information about the process of making tea, and the history of tea making in Sri Lanka. It was the first place we visited in three weeks with information available in English - both a brochure and information boards. It was very peaceful to go somewhere without touts too. We enjoyed our complimentary cups of tea at the end, and the lady from the tea shop on the floor below had given me an extra tea bag to try at the same time. What a clever businesswoman - it was delicious and if course I returned to buy a packet. This was the first time I was offered something rather than being approached by people harassing me to buy their substandard products. Definitely with a visit.
