This is a very interesting museum. If you love Air force you could get some minute details of the fighter jets and the Air Chief Marshalls.

Definitely worth once a visit. The museum gives a good idea about the various fighters of the IAF and the various levels in the IAF. There are models of planes used by the IAF, which was interesting.
