It’s hard to say why you should love this museum more: for its decently executed exhibits on Nilgiri and Andaman tribal groups, or the decomposing corpses of badly stuffed local wildlife. Seriously, the artefacts are fantastic – you may never get the chance to hold a Stone Age bow in your life again – and descriptions of the tribes are good, albeit academically anthropological. It's just beyond the village of Muthorai Palada (M Palada), 11km south of Ooty on the way to Emerald and served by frequent buses. A rickshaw costs around ₹350 return. Note that opening times can be a bit fluid.
