  • I liked this place. My son also enjoyed. Kids will see learn a lot here. They need this experience. Parking is little problem but you can manage. Ticket price is nominal 30 per head. There is place you can bring home food and eat here...picture perfect place. Specially kids above 8 yes can lot so much here.
  • Well built. Exhibits are really nice. Visitors can climb into a lot of the helicopters and planes for pictures. Very neatly organized and displays India's aviation history. Entry fee is very small too
  • If you love planes ,this is place to visit in Bangalore ,there are few things to be watch out 1.They ask for Card payments when purchase the tickets ,so if your not a local guy , you are in trouble .we ere helped buy a stranger with a kind heart . thanks to him we get in . 2. if you love to play the simulator Watch out ,They have a weight limit of 80 Kg .if your more than 80 kg ,they don't allow to play the game :(. History of HAL is shown with pictures and Indian Aviation will have greater future if they continue what they start.
  • HAL Heritage Centre or HAL Museum is a good place for a time out. I have been there often. It's a nice place within the city limits - cool and calm place to be to have good conversations and a relaxed walk. You can easily spend a good family afternoon there. A deviation from the constant Mall outings in Bangalore. The place has nice green gardens with flower plants and green grass. It even has 2 water fountains. It even has a fish pond with some big fishes. It was recently renovated - but not by much. And the Airplanes! are an added advantage. Their Souvenir Shop and Canteen need improvement.
  • I like the fact that the lawn and the exhibits are well maintained, and it was really educational even without a guide. The landscaping is neat and I love the architectural and interior design of the HAL history and beyond building. The place makes one appreciate the military and aircraft industries, programs, history, and progress here in India. But I was quite disappointed with the simulation. It's just a video game. Might as well play at home or some arcade facility. A word of warning to parents who want their young kids to try the motion simulation facility-only 16 years and above could use the motion simulator; younger than that they can play the basic simulation. 100 rupees for the motion simulator; 50 rupees for the basic simulator. The attendants at the simulation room takes lunch and returns at 3pm, so walk around a lot and have your lunch first as well. And I wish they had more snacks to offer. Chaats would be great! But they only have junk food, crappy cup noodles, and cookies. Okay they have tea and coffee at least. Oh, and I noticed that even if there's a signage that bringing food inside is not allowed, a lot of people actually brought their home-cooked meals! Bring at your own risk I guess?
