  • Few corals presented here are worth visiting. They are huge sea shells which you won't be able to see anywhere this easily. There is a small aquarium where you see a variety of fishes. But as I mentioned, it is a small aquarium. It is not worth the watch. But you can visit the museum if you have time on your hand and want to get a flavor of Andaman Islands. There is also a sitting place where videos of different islands are shown.
  • This museum is all about the ocean and marine life of almost every main island. It has also some marine animal aquariums and cells , corals also. You have to purchase tickets to visit this place which is around Rs20 and for adults. It is a good place to take your children to learn and enjoy.
  • An amazing maritime museum maintained by Indian Navy at Port Blair, about 3 odd km from the airport. The skeleton of a whale at the entry gives an idea of how big the creature is. Inside, there are many sections having models of tribal life, marine flora and fauna. The corals collection is good. It is any day better than the Govt museum near the Water Sports Complex. Entry fee is nominal. Must visit this museum on arrival at Port Blair so as to understand Andamans better.
  • Awesome arrangements by Navy. Facility of watching Video about all the destination of Andaman and Nicobar islands. Museum display details about indigenous peoples, wood types. Display different type of fishes, corals and dummy of indigenous peoples and their living.
  • A beautiful, well maintained museum showcasing not only the history of the andamans and their tribes, but also the natural beauty of the islands with specimens ranging from corals to the shells and other sea life. The only con for this place that I could register was the somewhat disappointing store. There wasn't anything interesting or affordable there. Except for that, 5 stars to this place and the navy for maintaining it so well.
