Mizoram State Museum

Northeast States

This government museum has some interesting old Mizo artefacts and models of traditional village buildings, but the display is a bit random and shabby. It’s a 300m walk up a steep lane from Zarkawt Traffic Point, past the distinctive Zarkawt Presbyterian Church, whose modernist belltower-cum-spire is pierced by arched ‘windows’.
