Founded by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) in 2001, HAL Heritage Centre and Aerospace Museum is the second largest public aerospace museum in India and is one of the best tourist attractions in Bangalore.
The complex has a museum where innumerable air crafts, jets, fighter planes etc. are put on display. Along with a museum displaying the history and achievements of HAL, the complex also has an aero modeling club, a library and a souvenir shop. Visitors can also try their hands at flight simulators, just by shelling INR 10.
The museum gives an insight into everything that one might wishes to known about the aeronautical history of the country along with giving a sneak-peek into some of the most fierce fighter planes of the Indian Air Force. You can even see life-size models of these plans on exhibit, an equally wonderful sight for adults as well kids.
Some of the exciting displays at HAL Heritage Centre and Aerospace Museum include an antique Canberra bomber, models of the Kiran and the Marut, and the ill-famous MIG-21.
