Great Collection and Presentation

Neat and well organized place showcasing Naga heritage, tribes, culture, dresses, jewelry, and even headhunting trophies (read heads)! Must visit along side Kisema Village to get an overview of Naga Culture.

Well maintained and informative

The World War II Museum is located within the Naga Heritage Village complex in Kisama, near Kohima. It is a well curated museum with numerous artifacts and illustrations on the Battle of Kohima and also on Indian National Army. The galleries are well maintained and very informative.
