Pros A must see for every Indian. The models of the planes and helicopters are very life like The 6 year old son and I had a great time learning about Indian Air Force. The souvenir shop is very reasonably priced. I bought quite a few things, key rings, T shirts, time piece (in the shape of a airplane).

A place where we can get to know about the various operations the IAF has taken in the north-east. A must visit for aviation buffs, it quite a number of aircraft and aircraft parts on display. It may be the only such museum in the northeast.

Amazing history of almost all the operations our Air force has undertaken in the North east region right from World Wars to 65 and 71 war. It is on way to Elephant falls and a must visit place.

If you are interested for our army and air force related matters, please visit this place. It is located on the way towards Cherrapunji from Shillong. You will get to know lot of things about Indian Air force. Even you can take snaps also. Many models of Aircrafts can be seen here. Overall good experience.

Get to know some of India's great war heros and Indian air force might. A small musuem and id card is mandatory to be allowed inside. Musuem is well maintained and one can spend an hour.
