The place mostly remains closed due to lack of visitors. It is located close to the Ujjayanta palace and is well maintained by the The Tribal Research and Cultural Institute. There are no signboards, just walk up to the fourth floor and request the management to open the gallery. Free entry!

This museum occupies one floor of a somewhat dingy government building. It is a small museum with a single theme, but worth visiting to learn about the numerous tribes from the area. For each tribe there is diorama with a small group of tribe members in their traditional costume, accompanied by concise information on their origin, social structure, textiles/dress, customs, dances and current population numbers. The consistency of presentation makes it much easier to appreciate what makes each tribe distinctive, and whilst some of the information is available in the State Museum, the information here is more comprehensive. There are a few handicraft displays but little else, but that shouldn't put you off visiting.

Not much known in the city of Agartala about this museum which during my last visit to the city in March. This beautiful Tribal Museum which has excellent presentation of tribal culture of Tripura with good description of each tribe. It needs better promotion of the Museum. Director there was knowledgeable and showed us the publications about tribes in Tripura.

I read about this museum on Trip Advisor and found that most people had no clue about it. They all pointed me to the State Museum at the Palace.

I persevered and eventually found this museum on the 2nd fl. i have submitted photos of the building from the outside for ease of reference.

There are well designed and beautifully crafted murals and dioramas on the many tribes. Each with a panel explaining the tribal background. I have given a sample for reference.

I met the Dep Director Mr Reang who has been there since Jan 2010.i told him a bit about myself. He did not ask a single question why i came and why i was with him! All he did was get me a recent leaflet on books published on tribes! I asked him his background; no answer. When i persisted and asked if he was a researcher, he said he had no special knowledge. In which case, how did he become Dep Director? Was it because he is a tribal?

It is pathetic and shameful, in my view, that there is no positive promotion on tribal culture outside the state. In Mumbai, the main tourist office at Churchgate has literature on these States which is dated early 2015. Nothing later! Why blame people that our tribal culture is dying when it is these very people in charge who are doing nothing to promote it outside the State.
