Located in the Bara Bazaar area of Shillong, Rhino Heritage Museum is dedicated to the army personnels, military weapons and war missiles and rifles. The museum gets its name from the pink coloured rhinoceros sculpture installed outside the premises. Among other exhibits, the highlight is the display of the weaponry of the Japanese army.
Built in 1928, it is believed that the site of the museum is where the Japanese prisoners of war were kept imprisoned. It was later on built and renovated by Lt. Gen Shokin Chauhan, the director general of Assam Rifles. The Rhino Heritage Museum has distinctive galleries and photographs showcasing not just military paraphernalia but also depicting the local culture.
