  • If u have not been there then you would not understand the tribes and their culture and history of the north east. A great museum dedicated to the indigenous people of NE India. Very compact in seven stories in well laid out galleries with good guides and IT interface in all galleries. Lighting us good and the toilets are very clean. Overseas visitors are charged more than Indian. For students of anthropology and sociology a must see place.

  • Unbelievably beautiful place to visit. You will be amazed by visiting this place. The museum is well organized by the management. Very neat and clean. The arts and way of display is unique. Do not miss this place if you are visiting Shillong. Rooftop view from museum is very nice.

  • This place had a lot of great information that was clearly collected with a great amount of effort. A good experience for children. The only lacking part was the use of technology and lack of interaction to download all the extra information that was available in the museum. There was a little 9min documentary type film that we all enjoyed which covered many relevant aspects of the north east. As mentioned in most reviews, the best part was the skywalk on the top floor so don’t miss it.

  • Amazing place, worth the visit, very well managed. The Don Bosco museum is the best place to know about the natives of the East India. Everything is perfectly explained and very well kept. It is a 7 story heaven for historians and enthusiast alike.

  • The museum takes you through the journey of the 7 sisters floor by floor. Must say very systematically planned and we'll presented. The highlight is the sky walk from where you can see the entire Shillong city
