Take off to Goa's Naval Aviation Museum to observe the history & evolution of Indian Navy!

Established in 1998, Naval Aviation Museum is an exhibition of naval armaments.

Triggering a similar excitement to that which we felt as children when our paper planes took flight from the terrace of our homes or classroom windows, is the National Aviation Museum in Goa. Home to a prized collection of vintage and serving aircraft, their engines, armaments and much more, a visit to this museum is a delight for every aviation enthusiast and curious tourist. Located only an hour away from Panaji, a visit to this one-of-its-kind museum in Asia, is recommended for all those who are looking for some quality family time over the weekend!

Walk the Earth with eyes turned skywards!


Established in 1998, Naval Aviation Museum is an exhibition of naval armaments that have aided the sterling efforts of the Indian Navy in protecting the sea frontier. This museum was inaugurated by Admiral RH Tahiliani (Retd.)- the first Naval Pilot to land a fighter aircraft, 'Hawker Sea Hawk' on the deck of the aircraft carrier INS Vikrant on 18 May 1961.

The artefacts in the outdoor exhibit of this museum include, among other things, the Chukar- a pilotless aircraft used for training practice and a dissected view of the engines of aircraft like Sea Harrier and Tupelov-142M, which are pure engineering marvels. At the indoor exhibit, you will encounter the exquisite display of Vikrant Hall which houses models of various aircraft, the ceremonial crests of all Squadrons of the Indian Navy and other paraphernalia.

Survival equipment such as fighter aircraft's ejection seat and life-rafts can also be located along with the depiction of a brief history of Goan liberation, in the Vikrant Hall. Further, the precinct also has a Cockpit Café located adjacent to the reception-cum-souvenir shop where hungry tourists can enjoy snacks and drinks!
