Well this is a must see place during your visit to Shillong. Summarizes and captures the essence of the North-East culture and history. We just loved it and spent 3 hours going through each level and absorbing the rich cultural heritage displayed.

The Don Bosco Center is doing a great stuff, by showcasing the indigeneous cultures of North East india of which most Indians are unaware of.

The highlight is also the Skywalk...donot miss it. For student, note that there is a student concession. All amenities are in place - food, toilets in each floor, photography(by paying a fee)

I suggest this must be the first place one should visit during the trip to Shillong.
