“Teak musuem - where teak shows its true nature!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

World's first teak museum located in Nilambur is about one and a half drive from Kozhikode. The road is heavenly. From the bottom of my heart I appreciate the concerned authorities for giving such a comfortable drive.
Upon reaching there, we find a curious looking statue. The curiosities do not end there. The teak museum is a wonder house. It is a double storied building showcasing teak in every way possible. Some of them are sure to leave you awe struck.
Outside the museum there is a garden. A vast one that has innumerable photo opportunities. So many flowers, so many plants. A wonderful sight.
It is better to take umbrella and a bottle of water before starting your visit. Do pay for camera, as the staff are very strict. In fact, one of the most striking thing is how well maintained the place is!
The teak museum is a guaranteed pleasure visit. Spending a few moments with trees surely brings serenity to mind.

“Excellent sight to see!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2012 via mobile

Popularly known as Nilambur Teak Museum

Should be made more prominent & given much more importance. Enroute to Ooty, Advised to see during morning hours. Will post pics once available. Flora lovers should travel to this place. The travel & drive on the uneven greenery filled scenic road itself is a good experience. Have somebody else drive the vehicle, if you would like to experience these sights. Occasional sights of Deers & frequent sights of peacock & hen. If temp allows, avoid a/c in the vehicle & savour the cool breeze & fresh air from these areas. Allergic persons be cautious if dust or pollens. Last visit was in 2002. Will post updates, as I plan to visit again with kids.
