Our next visit was to the Science Centre on Corbyn's Cove Road. It was more of a student affair, but worth visiting. For a while, we felt as if we were some school students, curiously looking, reading and knowing about each exhibit. But, there were some interesting facts about these islands, its history and its anthropology that we learnt through the displays, especially, about the Jharawa Tribe. About the total number of islands in this archipelago, how many were inhabited and how many were still Virgin Islands, far away from human settlement.
A lovely museum, this works with the aim of conserving the tribal culture and heritage of the islands. Also, they have different sections for different types and the most attractive is that of the Jarawas. The simple décor of the place might not seem to be very attractive but the way they work shows how passionate they are about their place and do love their heritage.
Samudrika Marine Museum
Another wonderful museum run by the Indian Navy, this is themed on the seas and life around it. They have various sections in this museum for a particular subject. There are divisions for exhibiting marine life, tribal life, lifestyle, culture, occupations. There is a separate gallery dedicated to the naval forces and there is a small aquarium too.
