  • Good display of information to know about the old culture of people of the island , especially Tribals with their habits and lifestyle 
  • Should visit to know about the tribals of andaman and their livelihood. Not Suitable for couples I believe. 
  • not the best place. more like a if you have lots of extra time kind of thing. nice if your very very into history and all but for a regular person kind of boring. its a self guide museum so understand...  more »

  • None 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.
  • The best place to find the feel of Andaman. The origin of man! Look out for the amazing display. Sadly photography ain't allowed. But It comprises beauty of Andaman.It presents awful craft work . Small but well maintained museum with low price ticket.
  • It's a nice place to learn any old settlements if u have 20mins to spare. Look it up before or after lunch...
  • The museum is great an located at prime place near secretariat building and court house. It has excellent display of the demographic and tribal history of the Island. A place one must visit while coming to Port Blair
  • Good place to know about the tribes that have inhabited the A&N islands for all these years. It gives a glimpse of the way of life, the origin and the evolution of the various tribes, some of which still thrive in the Nicobar Islands.
