If you are aircraft enthusiast, this place is definitely for you. One must take their children to the place. It is India's first aerospace museum located at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited premises, in Bangalore. Kids can touch and feel the plane (not allowed to board ofcourse).
It's a well maintained museum with all the historic events recorded. It is heaven for people who like aircraft and their technicalities
There are many plane models with their specifications mentioned. There are small cafes which serve samosas, tea, chocolates, chips, drinks and many more. Washrooms are well maintained. They also have a souvenir shop.
it is definitely a must-visit place.
There was no waiting line when I visited the place. there is no google payment, only cash or card accepted.

The HAL Heritage Center & Aerospace Museum is worth visiting. It is a comprehensive museum that tells the story of the Indian aerospace industry, from its humble beginnings to its current status as a global leader. The museum has many exhibits, including aircraft, helicopters, missiles, satellites, and engines. There are also interactive exhibits that allow visitors to learn about the science of flight.
The museum is in a beautiful setting on the outskirts of Bangalore. It is well-maintained and clean, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The museum is open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and the entry fee is Rs. 30 for adults and Rs. 20 for children.
Here are some of the things you can see and do at the HAL Heritage Center & Aerospace Museum:
See a variety of aircraft, including fighter jets, bombers, helicopters, and transport aircraft.
Learn about the history of the Indian aerospace industry.
Explore interactive exhibits that explain the science of flight.
Take a simulator ride and experience what it is like to fly a plane.
Visit the Rose Garden and Orchid Park.
Have a picnic lunch in the museum's garden.
Leaving the museum was bittersweet. I was sad to leave behind the heritage and pride of India that had captured my heart, but I knew that the memories I had made there would stay with me forever. The HAL museum had given me a newfound appreciation for our air force and the defence forces of India.

For the eager visitor, please keep these things in mind.
Parking space is ample and free. It is located at the corner gate after the ticket counter, almost 500 metres away.
Tickets are at 50/- for Adults, 30/- for children, 20/- for each smartphone, and there is a fee for a Video Camera.
They don't take UPI and cash. They only allow card transactions throughout the HAL Museum. So keep a card handy.
If you have children, please ask for Simulator fees at the counter before entering the HAL museum.
You can bring your food, and make it a family picnic together.
The cafeteria is good.
A souvenir shop is adjacent to the cafeteria.
Keep aside at least 2 -3 hours for the visit.

I am sorry to inform you that I had the worst experience at the HAL Heritage Centre and Aerospace Museum this month.

I think these stupid changes made in that centre are without the knowledge of top level management.

Point 1 : We have to pay Rs. 20 for taking our mobile inside the museum even though it is not a smart phone. I had to pay Rs. 20 for a Nokia keypad phone.
If we refuse to pay the amount, all the staff in the entrance will start shouting at us. They do not have manners and do not know how to behave with guests.

Point 2 : Our Government is focusing on a cashless economy and they are not accepting any UPI payment in 2023. The funniest thing is that even a PAN shop has UPI payment facility in 2023 and HAL has only card payment.
Point 3 : The behaviour of the person in the simulator area was horrible.(Photo of the person attached) People were waiting in front of him to collect tickets like beggars and he was not even speaking a word since that board was there "COUNTER CLOSED".
Two photos of this person have been attached since I could not collect his name.
He closed the counter by 4PM and museum working time is till 5PM. This shows the irresponsible character of this person. (Please see the time in the clock in the photo)
Point 4 : "NO REFUND ON POWER CUT" - See the great notice on the wall.(Refer Photo)
After taking a ticket if there is no power, you lose your money. WHY HAL IS MAKING MONEY LIKE THIS. If you are financially strong then why do you have to kill your guests like this.

First give soft skill training to the staff in HAL Heritage Centre and Aerospace Museum on how to behave with visitors.

This is not my personal experience. Many people had this same experience from HAL Heritage Centre and Aerospace Museum and you may refer to the Google reviews for proof.

Please verify the attached photos.

We with my nephew (4 year old) to show him plane and helicopter. I was amazed to see there are so many of them and such a vast collection. It shows the history of India's aerospace and has information about the plane, its origin, everything. It is very well maintained, clean, vast and perfect for young kids. They also have playarea come garden space for small kids to play. An interactive theatre and lots of knowledge. We went on some specific day so entry was totally free!

The place is extremely enjoyable for young kids. My 5 year old enjoyed every bit of her stay with real life aircrafts. She could even touch and feel couple of them. As for us, grown ups, this place is a treasure trove of Indian Airforce history. Even the heritage area with photography and model collection becomes intriguing for lovers of Indian history. The only challenge I found was the parking. With limited parking area for 4 wheeler, (8-10 maximum), the parking becomes hectic especially on holidays

It is great place for kids to see and take a feel for airplanes, helicopters and rockets! The gardens are well maintained, the mini play ground is also good. The only thing I found amiss was the lack of goods at the souvenir shop and the cafeteria, but I can attribute it to the slower traffic during pandemic.
It was quite crowded, being a Saturday. Since the place is very open and will spaced, crowd mangement was done nicely.
It took us about an hour to see the whole place.

Great place for young children to experience HAL aviation and watch the planes. Well maintained place. Gardens, fountain, solar and wind energy prototypes and a cafeteria adds to the vibe of the place. Covid protocols are being followed.

Pride of our nation and must visit for any aviation enthusiasts. From light helicopters to jet fighters along with their engines are really informative. By the by, no camera allowed inside the premises . Well maintained facility. Check out their flight simulators
