Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures is a famous museum that is known for preserving the culture of the various tribes and communities of Northeast India. This place is run by the Salesian order of the Catholic Church and has a gigantic archive of information on the states of Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura. There are numerous galleries dedicated to various categories and groups of artifacts.

With so many artifacts related to the tradition and the culture of this unique part of the country, you are bound to soak in their history and heritage too. And before you leave this amazing museum, make sure you visit the Skywalk, which will give you a mesmerising view of the city of Shillong.
