Overview

Here is the place where you come to know that Andaman & Nicobar islands were all part of the South Asian mainland with continuous mountain range running down from the Arakan Yomas in Burma through Sumatra, Java and Indonesia. Then, 150 million years ago, due to geological activity, the land submerged and created the islands of mountaintops. The genesis of the Andaman & Nicobar archipelago is depicted through interactive exhibits in the Andaman & Nicobar islands gallery of the centre.
But it is only a part of the whole. This science centre explains the science of oceans, while allowing the visitors to create waves of varying parameters and explore their features. Here you can see the youngest rock sample found in India. It is a testimony to the under-crust activities still going on around the Barren Island. Finish with it and you are invited to the flora and fauna of the islands, to its tourist attractions or to the rare simulated view of the oceanic floor.
