  • Samudrika Museum~ The museum is managed by Naval people. And as the name itself says samudrika so the museum is based on oceans and marine life. You find every crucial detail about how to save the oceans and how beautiful the underwater life is . So if you are in Port Blair you should definitely make time for this and entry ticket is around 50 per head

  • Very good Museum One of the must visit place. Very good collection of sea shells, Coral, Tribal architecture Models.... Good aquarium with decent amount of fish species... One can quickly get the history, geography, cultural knowledge of Andaman and Nicobar island's.....

  • Nothing great to say about it as it is not how you expect. There are no much live fishes displayed. everything is dead and kept for display in bottles. So you won't understand which colour it was when alive. Then you need to identify from the photo and its explanation underneath. Some fishes, crabs, lobsters etc are displayed but numbers are very less. So you could spend max 20-30 minutes when you wait for your cab to come as it is in a walk able distance form Cellular Jail.
