An excellently maintained museum which had numerous tales to tell. The pain the armed forces take to make our days peaceful is worth many salutes.......

This is a place not only for tourists but even for for the locals. You should bring your kids here and let them learn about the glorious past of the Indian Air Force. It is well maintained and you can snap photos liberally. There's even a souvenir shop. Take time out during your visit to Cherrapunjee.
