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.

As it had very good collection of past and present history of Islanders and island but exhibited very oldy way... But even good to visit only take a hour. Government should work on to make it more attractive...

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