“Air Force Museum”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Must visit , if you are going to Shillong. Specially if you have kids. They will love the experience to be inside a helicopter , to see real parts of aeroplanes , fighter planes. The Souvenir shop is also good for gifts and other items. I did buy some for distributing at home. Very reasonably priced.

“Good Museum”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Found this to be the only worth visiting destination in Shillong. The Museum is located as a part of Air Force base on Cherrapunjee Road and a small part of the restricted area is carved for visitors. Entry is free. At the museum one can find some vintage war plane models. Had a immense time at this place.

The Museum is not well staffed but is clean and maintained well. There are planes from all eras kept in very good condition! One of the Museum guides explained everything like the planes history, type of old planes, pictures, mementos, models to actual air craft’s etc. Few attractions in the museum like world’s oldest airport, Wright brother’s memorial etc.

Would recommend this place for any one going to Shillong.

“fly in the past through flying warriors”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

great place to be proud of a ever ready airforce guarding nations frontiers,the displayed items ,though small in number,place is good and i feel that the most sought for command given for surrender of genral Niazi and birth of new nation,by FieldMarshal Sam Maneckshaw"theek ---baje sar utha ke dekhna hamare do hawaijahaaj tumhare upar se gujrenge,surrender karo varna nestnabood kar diye jaoge" be replayed thru speakers,
