Respect for Armed forces
Feb 2020
National pride, in case you have respect for country and Armed forces you should visit this place. Very informative specially for the young children. You get to see so many interesting things about wars and Defence forces. This place is very well maintained and give you feel of patriotism. Parking is available and light and sound show is conducted in the evening. Snacks corner is also available. You can buy souvenirs from souvenirs shop. Overall good experience.

Must visit.
Mar 2020
I visited today because I really wanted to. The war memorial is closed till 31 March. So I just could view the memorial from outside. For the same reason, I could not see the museum which is nearby. Maybe,some other day I will drop in and have a look for myself.

A must visit place on a weekend
Jan 2020
This place is a must-visit place especially during the weekend when they hold light and sound show in the evenings. The place is well maintained with courteous staff and the visit raises the national feeling. There is a tea shop, a souvenir shop located inside. One should not miss the paintball shooting and the wreath-laying ceremony. They have a nominated parking.

National war memorial southern command
Jan 2020
I visited there with my family on Saturday evening. It was quite a cherishing moment for me. In the museum there is a collection of all the events happened with the Indian army. At 5.30 PM, there was a parade, they paid homage to the martyrs and furled the flags. At 6.45 PM, there was a laser show about the history of southern command and its role in establishing peace.

I love indian military
Dec 2019 • Family
I visited so many places in pune but today got the chance to visit this place and i like it most. So many military tanks, a fighter plan and good museum.
There is a 30 mins parade which takes place on 5:30 pm. There is also a 45 mins light show starts by 7 pm which i like most, which narrate the great saga of all the battle won by Indian army like surgical strike, kargil, 1971 n all. The light and sound was arranged in such a great manner that at one moment it feel you standing in battel field while war is going on.
There is also a nice shop there where you can buy do many army related stuff like tshirt , cap, key chain, mug n many more at very affordable price
I suggest you to reach by 5 pm so that you can cover everything.

Tribute to armed forced
Nov 2019
The place has a nice collection of tanks, artillery and planes used by the Indian armed forces. The staff is courteous and one can read about the various instances when our armed forces have protected us. A great place to visit to teach young kids about history and geography.
