  • A good place to explore for under water things like shells and coral reefs and knowledge about Andaman and nicobar islands. They are having a whale skeleton in front.  more »
  • This is one great museum. Very well maintained and with excellent displays. Keep about 2 hours for this. Had one suggestion though -- the displays at levels above eyes can be put on reclining shelves ...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Located in Port Blair Fisheries Museum is a well-known tourist attraction in the Andaman Islands. This popular sightseeing place of Andaman has a wide range of installations with informative coverage of the islands’ ecosystem, plants, animals, tribal communities and marine life. This museum includes a small aquarium that houses various collections of fishes and corals and shells. This museum is located adjacent to the Rajiv Gandhi Water Sport Complex, Port Blair. And this place exhibits species of marine life endemic to the islands.
  • 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.
  • Excellent Place to know about Sea Life. Extensive details about formation and preservation of Coral Reef. Various varieties of Coral and Pearls are under display. Sales Counters are there. Toys made out of Shells, Pearls are available in plenty. Prices are reasonable. More than the Price, we can buy here without worrying about Quality since this is a Govt Organisation and Pearls Sold here are genuine.
