Very informative and useful. We should visit this first and then go for seawalk or scuba diving. The museum contains the total information about different types of corals.

Samudrika Naval Marine Museum ... is a great place to know the marine life typical to the great Andaman sea and Bay of Bengal ... The place is run by Indian Navy and houses multiple sections such as aboriginal tribes / history of Island / Navy's importance / souvenir shop etc ... It has one of the best collections of exquisite corals/ shells / super giant clams / whale skeleton / items of use by the tribals ... The place is just opposite to Andaman Teal House at Haddo ... and is a definite MUST VISIT
