  • Very nice enjoyed the time I was there. Very insightful for someone from the States.
  • One of the best cultural centres/museums in the country, let alone Meghalaya. A must visit for all tourists who want to know more about the culture of Northeast India. Clean and well organised too!
  • Really liked this place. I spent almost three hours here, taking in the history and the culture of the people of North East India. The skywalk is a must, as it offers a breathtaking view of Shillong. Also, do check out the good indigenous food menu in the food lounge.
