  • The museum is a must visit place when you come to Port Blair. It provides you a deep insight of the flora and fauna of the place. It also gives us an insight of the culture of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. It provides information of the different tribes living in the Nicobar and their way of living as well. There is also a rest area where you can sit and watch informative content being played on the screen.
  • It's a must go place, you should take your kids and family there as they will surely enjoy it. I recommend visiting this museum on your last day so you can relate to things you have seen around in port blair. Just by the entry point is a blue whale's skeleton placed in a glass box. And there are two big anti aircraft guns are placed by the entry point, you can also see various naval equipments and weapons on diplay. Inside the museum there are many different halls dedicated to different kinds of things, like there are all kinds of corals in one, and different kinds of fishes in another. You must visit this place also there is a souvenir shop inside the museum which is great.
  • Good place to know more about Andaman islands. Very good collection of fishes, shells, corals. This place also shows little bit history of Andaman. Entry fee is ₹50 and the place is worth every penny you pay. There is a shop where you can buy stuff like shells and things created using shells n all but it is very expensive.
  • in a zest if u want to see the diversity of Andaman u must visit this place. naval museum has a vivid range of fishes coral and some insight regarding the native tribal. it has a lounge that plays documentary regularly regarding some unseen places of Andaman and Nicobar islands
  • Decent place in heart of port Blair. Fish and anthropological museum combined into one. Ship guns nd missiles on display.. photography allowed inside the museum.. maintained by indian navy. Souvenir shop attached to museum.
