  • A great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Bengaluru and wander round some static plane exhibits. The museum isn't exactly modern and the first exhibition hall is full of old photos which are of limited interest. We also forewent the movie in hall 1 and the flight simulator so I can't report back on these. The best thing about the museum was the large number of static aircraft exhibits set in well kept grounds and as we caught the museum at an off-peak time it was a very restful place to spent a couple of hours.
  • It's an absolute delight to be here. Nothing more can make you proud than this. A must visit place for all aviation freaks. They are expanding and possibly adding new displays. You would be able to see choppers take test flight and on lucky days a fighter jet fly too. Souvenir shop has a wonderful collection of metal replicas. Won't share much pictures as you must go and take a visit. Weekends are preferred over other days . Carry your own water.
  • It is a big aircraft museum. Great museum for day visit. You'll get to know about the history of HAL. They have almost all life size fighter plans. The plans models are worth the visit. Half of the museum is occupied by old photographs. You get to see a lot of old air force plans and helicopter. It is well maintained. It is a nice place for both kids and adults. Ticket price for adult is 50, for mobile camera they charges 20 more. Stimulated driving experience available. Entire HAL journey from beginning to till now shown by pictures and small models. Small models crafts are also sold here. It takes 90 minutes to cover all.
  • A good museum for Aeronautics enthusiasts. You'll either visit this for photo clicks or collecting information. If you are actually interested in knowing about planes you'll have to take out good time to visit this coz too much information available. Usually people spend 1.5 hours. Knowledge enthusiast can even spend half a day. Ticket charges Adult 50/- Children and Student 30/- Mobile ticket 20/- Note: If you are coming with mobile phones you'll have to purchase the ticket for it. No arrangements(or locker) to submit phones. Ticket available only till 4: 30 PM. And it closes by 5 PM. And yes the museum building/campus marked at Google map is somewhat inappropriate, though the location is right.
