I visited this place while coming back from cherrapunji. It is situated close to police bazar area. You need to submit any of your original and valid identity card and then you are allowed to enter inside. You will see a very clean and clear atmosphere. A very well decorated museum. You are allowed to roam around the whole campus but you are only permitted to take pictures inside the museum.
There are few other places where you can see real planes choppers missiles and internal parts this up close. It's not too big. It also exhibits some Meghalaya culture as well. Caveat: it closes in the noon sometime and reopens at 2:30 so ask your driver to time accordingly. The elephant falls, another must visit is just a km away.
