Well this would fall on the way if you are travelling to Cheerapunji or dawki so a short 10-15 min visit is recommended. The Museum was closed for renovation when we visited but they have a small area where some warplanes are currently on display. Kids liked it :)

If you are fan of Air Force it's a must visit. I did purchase some souvenirs. Some of the glorious memories of old fighters are well preserved, but what attracted me most are some untold stories of the bravehearts and finally the gigantic poster of the mighty Sukhoi Su-30MKI.

It is situated on the National Highway and close to Elephant falls. It is really well maintained museum with all the history of India air force. You will have chance to see real Fighter planes, Helicopter displayed there. You will be proud of being a citizen of India.

Must visit place for exposure to the great history of Indian Air Force. This is located within the campus of Eastern High Command. Do shop for mementos, available at a small shop in the museum.

Visited this place with great pride. Inspires a genuine visitor. It needs more upkeep, and that's a very personal opinion. Wish the souvenir shop had more interesting things rather than some fancy clothes & snacks!

En route to several natural sites, we came upon the museum. While not extensive, it's eye candy for aviation buffs. Several planes and missiles include the front section of a Russian MiG 21 and a Viet-era SAM-2, which Western museums don't always feature. Interior exhibits aren't fancy, but provide strong histories of Indian equipment and the always-uneasy conflicts with Pakistan.... More
