Silvassa has been under different dominations in history, yet it has maintained the culture and traditions of tribals. Few prominent tribes scattered across the territory are, Warli (or Varli), Dhodia and Kokna. The government has established a museum, which holds the heritage of different tribal cultures of the union territory. This is a museum and an anthropological centre depicting how different tribes have originated in the region, how they have lived their lives and adapted to the changes of development. The walls of the museum are decorated with bows, daggers, spears etc., used by different tribes for hunting and fighting. The museum displays photos and clay models of the tribal lifestyle, their wedding dresses, handmade ornaments, daily household utensils and photos of any ceremony celebrated like the Kanseri Festival or the Kokna Tribal Dance. Various musical instruments like tarpha or pavri, dhol and madal are on display. There are various handmade masks of Pandavas, Ravan, puppets, dolls and many other gods and goddess. Fishing was the primary activity of the tribals and thus various fishing equipment is on display. The museum features Warli artworks in different forms and 3D tribal houses.
