The Anthropological Museum, in Port Blair, started in the year 1975-76, and is an ethnographic museum. It showcases the four Negrito tribes of the Andaman i.e the Jarawas, Sentinelese, Great Andamanese and the Onges and two Mongoloid tribes of the Nicobar - the Nicobarese and the Shompens. Since these tribes maintain very little contact with the outside world, the museum is a great opportunity to understand their culture and lifestyle. The major exhibits one can find are shamanic sculptures and Jarawa chest guard.

This museum is closed on Mondays and government holidays. It is one of the best and most well-maintained museums in the country that offers in-depth information on tribes, which are considered to be the oldest in the world.
