A museum with so much potential. However it is not well maintained. The staff need to be slick and more professional. All the assets need to be taken are off. That said worthy of a visit nothing that it is near the airport and not that easy to find. To enter you will ID and they do not take international cards.

Indian Air Force Heritage Museum
Chandigarh

Visited today. It is a smaller Museum compare to one in Palam, New Delhi

A very interesting collection of historic aircraft, artifacts, and pictures portraying the history of the Indian Air Force. Exhibits are not in great shape despite being newly built. Nevertheless, worth visiting as we do not have many options in our country.

Attractions:
3D Show
AV Show
Simulator
MiG 21 Cockpit

Worth visiting once if you are in town.

A very interesting collection of historic aircraft, artifacts, and pictures portraying the history of the Indian Air Force. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit once I was allowed in. I am an airline captain for a major US airline, and also a sincere aviation enthusiast that seeks places like this on my layovers around the world. Foreign visitors beware - the museum will not admit you if you do not have a passport in hand. Nowhere on the website for this venue do they make this fact obviously known. The military officer at the front entrance was not friendly and welcoming. Tried to explain that I had just taken a cab from my hotel to get to the museum. I subsequently took a cab back to the hotel and returned with my passport. After doing so I was admitted. I have not experienced this contingency at any other venues in India. It was very frustrating, and was a waste of time. Overall a nice little step back in aviation history - but the military staff curating the museum has a long way to go in making foreign visitors feel welcome.

Exhibits are in extremely poor condition - canopies painted over, missing tyres and engines, most aircraft stuffed in a small hangar, zero interactive activities or A/V shows for either kids or adults - any aviation aficionado will be heartbroken. I have visited many other AF museums across the world including SLAF near Colombo and this unfortunately ranks extremely poor compared to others. Even the old INS Vikrant and its exhibits were in way better shape as a museum ship. Saving grace if any is that the cafe and souvenir shop have improved.

If you are into military aircraft you could spend hours in this place.
It gives a good rundown of the history of the Indian Airforce including pictues of the many men who gave their lives in the service of India. If you like Russian/Soviet built fighters this is the palc eto be

Visited this and made a post only to realise that it was not on the correct log in; so, posting again!
IAF has an impressive past and its capability is obvious!! It is also a sombre moment to see the fallen Airmen (&women) and they need to be never forgotten.

The GNATs and the MIGs are awesome!

The facility is makeshift and the presentation is shambolic! Surely IAF can do better. Whoever responsible for maintaining this should perhaps go to Akshardham to learn how to showcase and look after their visitors. Come on IAF! I am sure you can do better than this.
