Tribal Museum in Silvassa

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

If you want to know the history of Silvassa, how the tribals here used to lead their lives all these years then the place to head to is the Tribal Museum.
The tribal office is located near The Tourist Office of Silvassa. The tourist office of Silvassa was not of much help, considering that the inquiry desk was unmanned.
No photography is allowed in the museum. The museum timings are 9 am to 5 pm. The museum hosts some photos that feature the lifestyle of the tribals, the agricultural instruments used by them in farming, the household items used by them etc.  It also features their musical instruments and the various masks of Ravan and the Pandavas and other deities.

Entrance to the Tribal Museum
Liquor seems to be everyone’s favorite. Tribals prepare their own liquor. The instruments for the preparation of the same are up on display here.
Fishing used to be one of the primary activities here, so their traditional fishing equipments are also on display. As are instruments used for hunting. Warli Art is also on display on the walls of the museum.
The most interesting exhibits here are the 3D houses of the tribals.
It takes around 30 minutes to see the entire museum and to top it all, you can view the exhibits here at no charge at all. It is completely free of cost.
So to know the origins of Silvassa, do head to the Tribal Museum.
