Goa Naval Aviation Museum, a look into our History.

The outdoor exhibit is a huge park that visitors can walk through and see decommissioned aircrafts that saw service with the Navy. Some of them date back to before the 1940s. A small shed also displays various aircraft engines.

Inside, visitors can read and learn about key battles the Indian Air and Naval forces have participated in. The indoor gallery is divided into special rooms designated for a certain topic. Some of them are 'armament', which show military weapons that are attached to submarines and ships; 'attire' which show the progression of the uniforms worn by the members of the Indian air and Naval forces over the years, among many others. Also on display are many rare and vintage photographs and documents that show several important periods in Naval Aviation History from 1959 onwards. One gallery also holds massive replicas of the INS Vikrant and INS Viraat. Another gallery holds a variety of bombstorpedoes, sensors and cannons used by the Indian Navy.

The Museum lies on Naval property adjoining the South side of Dabolim Airport, on Bogmalo Road off National Highway 17. Admission to the Naval Aviation Museum costs 20 Rupees for adults. Cameras are allowed, but would be charged separately. The museum is open on all days from 10:00am – 5:00pm, except Monday when it is closed.
