Peek into history and culture!

The museum is under the art and culture department of Meghalaya state govt. It is a part of state central library complex. By visiting this museum you will definitely know more about the culture and heritage of Meghalaya and also about the history. Its a must visit to know more about Meghalaya. There is also a souvenir shop from where you can take some souvenirs back home.
