The Indian Air Force Museum, Palam, is the museum of the Indian Air Force, and is located at the Palam Air Force Station in Delhi, India.[1] Entrance to the museum is free. The museum was the only one of its kind in India until the unveiling of the Naval Aviation Museum in Goa in 1998.

Description

The Museum entrance features an indoor display gallery that contains historic photographs, memorabilia, uniforms and personal weapons of the Indian Air Force from its inception in 1932. The gallery leads to a hangar exhibiting small aircraft and Air Force inventory like Anti Aircraft Guns, Vehicles and Ordnance. Larger aircraft are exhibited outside the hangar. This Outdoor Gallery contains aircraft that also displays several War trophies, Radar Equipment and Captured Enemy Vehicles.

The Vintage Aircraft Flight services some rare aircraft and maintains them in an airworthy condition. These aircraft are not open to the general public for viewing. Large transport aircraft are stored on the apron of the airbase due to lack of space. These aircraft are dispayed only on the annual Air Force Day. The Museum also has a small souvenirs corner.[2][3]
