An interesting place to visit though it could be better managed. Some good exhibits which highlight the anthropology of the Andaman & Nicobar islands. However, signages could be spruced up. There could have been some pamphlets and data can be updated

It was a very good exhibit about the island heritage. Children like it because of the various tools and costumes and models displayed.

Visit to this museum was worth. Andamanese culture & tribal artifacts marvellously displayed. A must in your itenery list. Centrally located at Port Blair. You can avoid other museums if you feel so. Don't miss this one.

The idea behind the museum needs to b appreciated - they have tried to throw light on the various tribes of the Andaman and Nicobar islands and have photos, objects, installations related to the tribes. I wish it was presented with a little more vibrancy...More

Entrance fee is Rs. 20 (Sep 2018). It will take around 1 to 1.5 hours to cover this. Model huts of Andaman and Nicobar tribals, their weapons and other artifacts are displayed.

I was a tourist only, these finer details you can get if you contact the Museum itself.
