It is around 7-8 Km from the city center. It is a Government museum that displays a lot of the items, model homes, tools, weapons, pictures, furniture etc related to the tribal groups who live in the Nilgiris. This is a must visit place for people who are interested in knowing more about cultures and enjoy visiting museums in general.... More

This was a very nice museum when it was built, but lack of interest has led to its decline. We had to hunt someone down to unlock it, and were the only ones inside. However, the artifacts and history are well worth your time if you have an interest in the tribal history of India. Just don't expect polish.

At the tribal research center is nice museum that shows a lot and give you of information about the adhivasi that are living at Nilgiris. It's a bit out of Ooty but you should go there.
