This musuem is one of its kind in this part of the world. It houses the entire north east and its diverse tribes and cultures. It may not be centrally located in town and one might have to make an effort to find it. But once you reach you will marvel at the churches and houses in and around the vicinity. The musuem is a treasure of knowledge for everyone and is best visited with friends and family. It is very educative for young school children and scholars alike. You should also try the chowmien and momos in a little place called "homely hut" , just outside the museum.
