Don Bosco Centre For Indigenous Cultures, Shillong Reviews
A quaint experience for anyone who wants to get an in-depth idea about the tribes of the Northeast at I've place. The tour is self guided with ample information available to read & even audio guides. What was more impressive according to me is how you are left alone to take your own time & proceed in your own pace though the entire experience. It has 7 floors worth of displays which would have been rushed if you were following a guide. Also has motion sensor lighting, so is an energy efficient establishment. The roof also give amazing views of the nearby localities.
Wow, what an amazing experience. Bring interest in life, the universe and all the rest. And bring time. The museum is split into topics which can be explored from the bottom floors to the roof, all is amazingly well explained, modeled and put together. Take a cup of the tasty coffee to the gallery on the top and enjoy the nice view. I definitely would do that again, with even more time. It is a museum of seemingly everything (besides Star Trek 😉)
Indeed this a must visit place. So much you will learn in shortest possible time. Maintained properly by the stuffs. Rooftop walk was memorable and splendid. Please don't miss to watch top floor video screening. Ticket price was 100 per head but I would say its totally worthy.
I found it best part of Shillong city. It has seven floors , a roof top view of Shillong city and a beautiful sovernier shop. you will get many photo opportunity for sure but there is much more to offer. Each floor shows one or two feature of entire northeast. Seventh floor even has a projector and sitting arrangement and movies and songs are played here. Entry is 100/adult and 100 for camera (your mobile phone camera ). Different timings for summers and winters and remains closed on Sundays.
This place is really awesome. I was visited here only one time but I want to be visit here again. One of the best museum ever I seen. Very nice...
