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

Up up and away!
HAL aerospace museum is located on old airport road and easy to locate via Google maps. There are plenty of convenient public transport facilities available to this place. There is a concession on the entry fee for students upon displaying student ID cards. Many old aircrafts and helicopters of the Indian airforce and Indian navy which are no more in use are displayed here along with descriptions, which is both amazing and informative. These models are spread across a beautiful garden with a children's play area and a few benches. There are some indoor displays too and a souvenir shop. There is a 4D virtual reality game center for children. A museum which is decorated with proud old and new photographs and display cards with historical and technological information about HAL, it's achievements and it's manufactures and a few aircraft models is a final touch to this spectacular land of metal birds. One can also enjoy the view of various helicopters taking off from or landing in the HAL airbase, every now and then, as it is close to this museum. There is no canteen or food stall but, visitors can bring food and water into the premises. This is ideal for a educational and relaxing outing. It is a sweet treat for children and aeronautic enthusiasts.

You would enjoy this place if you are an aeronautics enthusiast. A good place for taking children for fun and also learn about aircraft.

The collection of aircraft is poor. Most of them are very old. I understand that it doesn't make sense to keep a new one in the museum, but the ones in this museum are too old. But a great effort by HAL.

Very burocratic place. 2 people filled they bottle with water, nobody said anything, despite it is written that this is forbidden. When I washed my face, they criticised me. Very unfriendly place. Ticket office could not change 100 rs. When i left, they wanted me to fill in a lot of data. I refused.
