Lots to buy

The craft centre at Bomdilla is very inconspicuous and can disappoint one initially.Probe a little more into the rundown and old units and ask around you will get a chance to see the amazing small scale industry and work being done.
There are manual handlooms,fabric painting, art factories and very humble workers- men and women.
The main hall for sale was poorly lit and no one was present so I turned on all the light switches myself and Lo-and-behold!..a treasure trove of cushion covers,rugs,carpets handicrafts, wooden art et all was revealed.All for sale. A lady then walked in, we just picked what we liked , paid in cash and left the place happy!

Good, ethnic stuff on sale.
Dec 2017 • Couples
The emporium sells a wide variety of ethnic and local stuff at quite reasonable rates.
the person assisting buyers is quite knowledgeable and co-operative.

5 minutes away from the emporium is a centre, where they make the stuff.. Interesting for people who make handicrafts and accessories.

A Place Rich in Culture and Art.
Mar 2016 • Friends
The museum was established by the Arunachal Government to create awareness about the rich culture and art of Bomdia.
The District Craft centre & Ethnographic Museum at Bomdila, is a center that produces fine carpets of colorful designs and masks. Visitors coming to Bomdila make sure not to miss the museum.
A variety of carpets, Buddhist Thangkas (wall hangings) and handicrafts along with masks are produced and displayed here. The dragon design carpets are the major attraction of the museum.

Craft Center and Ethnographic Museum is precisely where you need to be if you want to experience the essence of the culture and lifestyle of Bomdila. The hand woven carpets, traditional masks and wall hangings are uniquely designed.
Carpets with dragon designs are very famous here.

Negates Expectations!
May 2016 • Couples
I had visited this "museum" with an expectation to be treated to a wide range of cultural and ethnic treatise of West Kameng district. However, contrary to my expectations, the said place turned out to be a shop rather than a museum. The compilation of items left a lot to be desired. Though there was an assortment of carpets, wood craft and others, diversity and depth in items were found lacking

Nothing to really stand out

Firstly it's not correct to call this a Museum. It's more like a craft shop.

While there are tankhas and carpets and bamboo/wood articles available, the items are not the best of the lot. Also, the variety that you see, is extremely limited.

Further, when I reached the center was not open, even though it was working hours. Had to speak to a government official and then a lady came around with a bunch of keys and opened the room up for me, with noticeable reluctance,

Out of the products, my friends bought two wood chairs at throwaway prices and are happy with it! :)

Dont forget to visit the small monastery just right outside the center.
