It's part of Cellular Jail- accquainting you with freedom fighters that were part of the prison. It also has episodes that brought them here by britishers. Good place to read history and understand sacrifices made by our earlier generations.

Hats off to the curator Mr Lall to collect, preserve & showcase such a lot of history via pictures, models & letters. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the museum - this one stop covers all you need to know about the history of the islands, one can easily skip the other museums like the anthropology museum. The collection on display here is much superior. Worth the visit!

The Kalapani museum is located right at the entrance of the Cellular jail. It has two big exhibition halls which have a huge collection of photographs and paintings of our freedom fighters on display. These brave freedom fighters were jailed here during our freedom struggle by Britishers. They also have a display of several items used by prisoners and British at the Cellular jail. There is a model of the original Cellular jail as well on display. It takes atleast 2 hours to see the place properly. Its a must visit place to understand in detail what happened here during the black era of British rule !!!

It is a museum which houses rare photographs about pre Independence history , especially how British army build jails and deported Indian freedom fighters for capital punishment in Andaman. The photographs are well maintained and history of Andaman and Nicobar is displayed in the museum
