This place is in Hantana Kandy with a collection of historical artifacts related to tea industry. You can learn a lot on the process and evolution of the industry. But the place is less maintained.

This was my first visit to a tea museum and it was interesting to learn all about different teas and the process of them. Worth a visit if you know nothing about the process/history of tea.

Sri Lankan tea is one of the most famous one in world and here you can see the history of the same... Old machines and stories are great for a tea lover...

Bit of a dated place with a slight musky smell but still worth a visit. You get a walk through tour with a very informative guide and a cup of tea at the end. Learnt lots and really enjoyed the short visit here

The museum is for hardcore tea lovers or people who just want to go for the sake of it. Inside there's a horrible tea smell which can cause a suffocating feeling, especially to people with breathing issues. Skip it if you can. Nothing here for...More

Sorry, I have the same answer as above. News to me. Try going to a tea plantation/processing centre. There is one in Haputale, man.
