Indian Air Force Museum is near the airport in Delhi.
This museum is the perfect place to take your family and kids for a dose of history and inspiration.
You’ll get to see all the vintage and current aircraft in the Indian Air Force’s inventory and even pick up some sweet souvenirs like t-shirts, caps, pens, and model aircrafts.
But beware, the display may be less than stellar and the upkeep leaves something to be desired.
But hey, it’s still a great way to motivate the kids. And if you need a snack break, there’s a small cafeteria selling water and biscuits.
The museum is managed by AVM Vikram Singh, a second generation test pilot and war book enthusiast.
Inside, you’ll find indoor and outdoor displays of historic photographs, memorabilia, uniforms and personal weapons of the Indian Air Force from its inception in 1932. You’ll also see anti-aircraft guns, vehicles, ordnance and even some war trophies and captured enemy vehicles.
But the real gems are the Vintage Aircraft Flight, which maintains some rare aircraft in an airworthy condition, but unfortunately, they’re not open to the general public. And if you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the large transport aircraft stored on the apron of the airbase during the annual Air Force Day on October 8th. So grab your bomber jackets and let’s go! “
