Amazing Museum

It was fantastic, unbelievable and God's gift to earth. It can be called the Switzerland of South India. Yes there are plenty of souvenirs to buy and the air is clean. Environment is fantastic and no pollution at all.

This museum just doesn't have anything attractive

This museum just doesn't have anything attractive. It's being taken care by the government people and there is hardly anything there. They usually keep some old stuff like wax statues, some old items from pre-independent times.

A nice museum, though not up to one's expectations

A nice museum, though not up to one's expectations. You can visit it once, if you want.

Awesome Experience

It's really a good place. We saw different types of historical items. Photography is allowed and cameras can be carried inside. It's good to visit before sunshine so we enjoyed our photography session.

Heart of Ooty

If you love plants and trees, it is the right choice. The fossil tree trunk is another attraction. Giant eucalyptus trees, coniferous trees and beautiful flowers etc. are the main attractions. There is a plant nursery selling all kinds of plants and seeds.
