This Museum, looked after by the Indian Navy is an outstanding place to commence one's tour of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. A small but beautifully laid out museum, it is worth a visit of a couple of hours. Though there is no guide available...More

Yes, there is a souvenir shop inside and has all the local mementos like shells, jewellery, wooden items, t-shirts, decoration items. Being a government run store, it's also the most reasonably priced

It would not be advisable to visit museums with luggage. You may leave the same in the car. Surely you would have the car no and driver's mobile number.

it's different and a lil far 30 mins in auto I would suggest first visit Samudrika followed by fisheries(near cellular jail) and then reach cellular jail by 3pm and follow by Light & sound show in the jail
