Air Force Museum Reviews & Ratings
It is far from the main city of Shillong. Nice environment to walk around. The museum is open for a short time. From the city is is so difficult to find routing cab or bus, other option is renting a taxi which is very expensive. Its a military zone area. The best thing is the elephant falls is very near from the museum.
Just like other air force museums in our country but the petrol of 2 air jets and 3 helicopters over the area for the safety of the territory is kinda thrilling.🔥
Photography is allowed only in the premises of the Museum. You can't enter without a valid id. Also, the security person can keep your card till you come back. Ticket- Rs.10
One of the best museum. Lots of history can be refreshed here
