The Institute of Social Development established the first Tea Plantation Workers’ Museum and Archive back in 2007. It is situated in a hundred-year-old line room (workers quarters) in the Old Peacock’s Estate in Paradeka Gampola, on the way to Nuwara-Eliya from Gampola. The Tea Plantation Workers’ Museum and Archive was established to protect and preserve the cultural heritage of the early plantation community. The museum presents the life of the early plantation community in four facets. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday 9.00 am-4.00 pm.
