  • Good place to know more about Andaman islands. Very good collection of fishes, shells, corals. This place also shows little bit history of Andaman. Entry fee is ₹50 and the place is worth every penny you pay. There is a shop where you can buy stuff like shells and things created using shells n all but it is very expensive.
