Information About Naval Aviation Museum

One of the two military museums in India, Naval Aviation Museum displays various aircrafts used by the Indian navy throughout its history. Naval Aviation Museum is one of its kind in Asia.

The museum was inaugurated in 1998 and has the interior that looks like that of INS Viraat. It has a number of galleries showcasing naval equipment, important battles, a simulation room, and an extensive granite plaque that pays tribute to those brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives in service of the country. The museum also houses a photo gallery that commemorates all the major battles of Indian Navy including the notable Operation Vijay.

One of the first rooms of the Naval Aviation Museum showcases a collection of arms including bombs, rockets, warheads, torpedoes, depth charges, etc. Another room named Sonobouy Room, displays a collection of sonobouys which are sensors used by Aircraft for detecting underwater enemy targets.

Yet another room, Suraksha Room exhibits gear and gadgets used for protection while at sea and in the air like the parachute, floating dinghy, ejector seat, pilot’s overalls and more.
