  • It was a great place to learn about Arunachal's fascinating culture. It offered several floors of different sections and showcased some interesting archeological findings.
  • It has 7 floors of informative Galleries. Covering details for North East India. Entry fees 100 INR for Indian Nationals. Separate charges for camera and cellphone with camera. Need 2-3 hours to complete the museum. Nicely built.
