The only interesting point is the skeleton of a young blue whale. The rest is badly presented, just few explanations, not enough. A short introduction to the tribes (it's better to go to the anthropological museum for that), a movie with nice images, a coral...More

This is really not a bad museum to visit, but what needs to be considered is that it is very huge and if you're in a group by the time everyone finishes it well you are done with half the day!!

It's a must visit place when visiting Andaman, and should be done on day one as it gives a good glimpse of the entire island in terms of its history, culture, people, places and things.Very well maintained too.

A good place to explore for under water things like shells and coral reefs and knowledge about Andaman and nicobar islands. They are having a whale skeleton in front.

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.
