The Don Bosco Museum of Indigenous Cultures at DBCIC (Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures) is Asia’s largest Museum of Indigenous Cultures of its kind. In it the visitor can have an overview of the whole of North East India. Rising into Shillong’s skyline the Museum is a seven storey building with 17 well laid out Galleries containing artefacts, paintings, fibreglass figures – all a feast to the eyes and a source of knowledge. Apart from its amazing galleries, Don Bosco Museum welcomes its visitors to have a breathtaking view of Shillong City from the Museum’s skywalk. A fascinating and informative collection of cultural and historical treasure of North-East India. I think this is the richest such treasure-house of this type anywhere in the world,exclusively displaying the heritage of the North-East of India. It is also a perfect blend of information with technology, with information screens, automatic lighting systems, etc. added to augment the experience of the visitors.
