The Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures is the largest cultural museum in Asia which displays the rich cultural of the north-eastern states. Tourists can see a wide range of artefacts, attires, handicrafts, ornamentation, weapons and rare photographs that have been collected from all the seven states of the region. Run by the Salesian order of the Catholic Church and situated in the Sacred Heart Church premises, the Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures is locally known as the Don Bosco Museum.

The artefacts in the museum are spread over a seven-storey building which has seventeen galleries. Each gallery is dedicated to a different aspect of the culture of the north-eastern states and thus tourists can visit galleries dedicated to weapons, costumes and ornaments, basketry, alcove and language. One of the main attractions of the museum is the skywalk which provides an enchanting and exhilarating view of the Shillong city.
