Given the rich heritage and culture of Nagaland, tourists should definitely visit the Kohima State Museum to get a deeper insight into the history and culture of the tribes residing in the state. Established in 1970, the museum houses rare artefacts belonging to all 16 tribes of Nagaland. From tribal attires and weapons to jewellery and sculptures, the exhibits of the museum leave visitors fascinated. Art-lovers must stop at the art gallery, which displays amazing paintings made by local artists. Lying in Bayavu Hill, around one and a half kilometres from Kohima's centre, the museum also showcases musical instruments used by the Naga tribes. One of the best attractions of the museum is the models of traditional Naga huts known as Naga Morung. The museum also houses a rare collection of precious stones like cornelian and tourmaline along with brass artefacts and silver bells.
