Palam Air Force Museum

The Air Force Museum, located at Delhi Palam Airport, has a considerable collection of non-operating Indian Air Force aircraft and a wide range of photographs, models and mementoes relating to the history of the Indian Air Force. The museum is located less than two kilometers north (ca 500 m west from the Thimayya Marg and Palam Rd intersection) of the domestic terminal complex on Palam Road. This museum is well worth a visit for any aviation enthusiast. Remember to pack lightly as bags are not allowed in the museum. There is no entry fee.
