  • Very nice information about the tribes. Photography is not allowed here. Anthropology- Study of Human Sciences. They have a video about the tribal people which is played. It is about a 15 minutes video. You should take about 30 minutes to visit this place.
  • This is a good museum. One can get a great overview of the various population groups that inhabit the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Of particular interests are the exhibits about the tribes of the islands. The building could do with an overhaul. It has a very 80's government vibe that subtracts from the experience.
