Naval Aviation Museum in Goa

The Naval Aviation Museum is situated at about 2 km from the airport on the Bogmalo beach. It is the only Naval Aviation Museum that exist in Asia and is also one of the only seven naval aviation museums that exist in the world.

At the Naval Aviation Museum, real aircraft that span the retries history of the naval aviation in India is displayed. The towering Lockheed super constellation used in the 70's for maritime reconnaissance and the amphibian short sea land - one of among the only three surviving in the world, and the first naval aircraft to be acquired by India stands next to the museum.

Also present at the museum are the Indian navy's first helicopter, the Hughes Hu 296c, the jet- trainer vampire, the anti- submarine Alize, the multirole dove and the fighter sea Hark (an indo-pak war veteran). However the sea harrier jump jet that is in frontline service with the Indian navy currently is the prize exhibit here.

Naval memorabilia is displayed inside the museum building. In the armament room lie Vintage torpedoes, rockets, and depth charges all deployed in previous wars. The archival photography section is adorned with aerial photos taken by Indian bombers that provide a graphic account of the destruction of Chittagong port and decimation of the Pakistani navy along with rare photos of Goa's liberation and those of the Indian naval aviation's finest hour - the liberation of East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) in 1971.

The museum is open on all days from 10 am to 5 pm except on Mondays.
