Why a Visit to The Naval Aviation Museum is a Must in Goa

A one-of-its-kind museum in India, the Naval Aviation Museum is a must-visit for all avid travellers, especially aviation geeks. Its close proximity to Dabolim International Airport and the Mormugao Port, makes it an even desirable attraction in Goa. Situated along the Vasco-Bogmalo Road just 6 kilometres from the port city of Vasco-da-Gama, a drive to this museum is spectacularly scenic; by virtue of it being perched on a plateau that overlooks the Arabian Sea.

Founded in 1947 by the Naval Force of India, the military history museum offers an outdoor aircraft park and a gallery with exhibits. The displays include a wide collection of aircrafts (both planes and helicopters), aircraft engines and parts, armaments, weapons, vintage war crafts, sensors, safe gears and ancient photographs that bear witness to India’s history of naval and aviation power.

Among the impressive aircrafts exhibited outdoors are the models of Super Constellation, Hawker Sea Hawk, Hughes, Fairey Firefly, de Havilland Vampire, Giant Lockheed, HAL Chetak, Sea Harrier and Breguet Alizé. Most of these models date back to the 1940s.
