Most museums have information and material but are not well laid out. However, this one is very well organised, displayed and showcased for people to easily understand. They even have a specific place earmarked to take selfies!

Having good collection of marine life and description of Andaman Island is worth visiting. You can have selfie with guns placed outside the museum.

It would not be advisable to visit museums with luggage. You may leave the same in the car. Surely you would have the car no and driver's mobile number.
