Anthropological Museum, Port Blair

Since prehistoric times aboriginals like tribes of Negrito origin inhabit the Andaman group, while the Nicobar Islands are inhabited by the Mongoloid stock. The museum displays a small but interesting collection of the weapons, tools, implements, models and habitats of the aboriginal tribes of the Islands. Photographs of the tribes, their art and handicrafts are other attractions. Visits to tribal areas are not permissible due to laws and regulations, this is an excellent way to get an insight on the tribes of the Islands.
