HAL Heritage Centre or HAL Museum is a good place for a time out. I have been there often. It's a nice place within the city limits - cool and calm place to be to have good conversations and a relaxed walk. You can easily spend a good family afternoon there. A deviation from the constant Mall outings in Bangalore. The place has nice green gardens with flower plants and green grass. It even has 2 water fountains. It even has a fish pond with some big fishes. It was recently renovated - but not by much. And the Airplanes! are an added advantage. Their Souvenir Shop and Canteen need improvement.
I like the fact that the lawn and the exhibits are well maintained, and it was really educational even without a guide. The landscaping is neat and I love the architectural and interior design of the HAL history and beyond building. The place makes one appreciate the military and aircraft industries, programs, history, and progress here in India. But I was quite disappointed with the simulation. It's just a video game. Might as well play at home or some arcade facility. A word of warning to parents who want their young kids to try the motion simulation facility-only 16 years and above could use the motion simulator; younger than that they can play the basic simulation. 100 rupees for the motion simulator; 50 rupees for the basic simulator. The attendants at the simulation room takes lunch and returns at 3pm, so walk around a lot and have your lunch first as well. And I wish they had more snacks to offer. Chaats would be great! But they only have junk food, crappy cup noodles, and cookies. Okay they have tea and coffee at least. Oh, and I noticed that even if there's a signage that bringing food inside is not allowed, a lot of people actually brought their home-cooked meals! Bring at your own risk I guess?
Good place for a short visit. Place is maintained well. Many models of aircraft models on display with details. Have a small souvenir shop which had some aircraft miniature models at decent price. Will be a nice educational trip for all School going kids.
The museum is good but needs major upgrade to keep pace of fast developing aeronautical & space technology. The models kept in museum should look more realistic. The professional approach is needed to manage & enhance the facility.
Visit this place once. For kids and student it is a nice place. Need to maintain more . Over all good place. Indian air Force and HAL is our pride. Jai Hind.
