  • Nice place to learn anthropology of this place. Children will know a lot about tribal culture.
  • No one was there to show the museum. Visited just because it was included in tour package. Nothing unique could be seen and instead of historical pictures , present day pictures were kept. Only coconut water at entrance was nice.
  • A lovely spot to discover the life style of A&N tribal people under one roof
  • Boring place ,nice for the one who love A&N culture
  • Worth seeing gives complete background and history of Andaman Nicobar Island natives.
