I visited there with my family on Saturday evening. It was quite a cherishing moment for me. In the museum there is a collection of all the events happened with the Indian army. At 5.30 PM, there was a parade, they paid homage to the martyrs and furled the flags. At 6.45 PM, there was a laser show about the history of southern command and its role in establishing peace.

I visited today because I really wanted to. The war memorial is closed till 31 March. So I just could view the memorial from outside. For the same reason, I could not see the museum which is nearby. Maybe,some other day I will drop in and have a look for myself.

Small memorial to Indian soldiers who have lost their lives in various conflicts since independence. The highlight is probably the MIG fighter jet which is still in very good condition. Worth a short visit.

The National War Memorial was constructed in 1998, built entirely with contributions from citizens. This memorial housed models of a Vijayanta tank, a MIG-23 plane and INS Trishul, highlighting the weaponry of the Army, Air Force and Navy respectively. The memorial contains the names of all soldiers who laid down their lives defending their motherland.

A recent addition to this memorial has been the national war museum, constructed and maintained by the Army Southern Command. This place has a couple of galleries with paintings and pictures highlighting the proud martial history of Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Southern India, which are the areas covered by the Southern Command. Next, there is the main building, which houses an impressive collection of weapons, captured flags and busts of notable military personnel, who displayed exemplary bravery and courage, in the face of massive obstacles. This building also contains detailed information of various military campaigns involving the Southern Command, including the 1965 and 1971 Indo-Pak wars, the liberation of Hyderabad and Goa, and the Indian Peace Keeping Force (IPKF) to Sri Lanka.

The piece de resistance, however, is the collection of tanks and armoured vehicles from these battles. Also noteworthy is the paintball arena, where visitors can form teams and take on each other in an exciting game. There is also a hall, which plays a video highlighting the immense contribution of the Indian Army towards nation-building and national security.

Other points to note:
1. The galleries are closed from 1-2:30 pm for lunch.
2. Entrance to this entire complex is absolutely free!
3. Photography is permitted, so feel free to click!

This place is a must-visit and one should devote at least 2 to 3 hours to do justice to it. It moves you and makes you feel proud of these brave men and women who sacrifice so much to ensure we stay safe. Strongly recommended!

In today's times, when our army's image is tarnished by few netas for political gains, this place becomes a must visit with our kids to tell them about our army's history, the sacrifices they made for us and enlighten them about the role army plays selflessly, during wars/natural calamities and peace time.
My 6 year old daughter loved this place and was curious about weapons and real photographs related to different wars. I narrated the stories in short to her at many instances.
There is no entry fees. Soldiers posted at place are very friendly. A good short film is shown narrating army's history. Artillery and armoury used by army are on display. There is paint ball site to give you feel of real life action.Museum has real photographs of different wars like 1971, kargil etc along with real stories of gallantry award winners. There are details of different operation carried our by army at many places in campus.

I would recommend it to everyone to visit at least once and your kids along.

I was searching for fighter plane model to show to my kid in pune & found this war museum online.
I must have cross this museum road multiple times in the year but was not aware about this museum.
This place is very well maintained & entry is free . The MIG 23 airplane as well as many tanks outside the museum are worth watching.
Museum has so many things to see including guns, photos , medals etc.
They have souvenir shop where they sell Tshirts with great photos printed on it.
I bought one tshirt. I think they should keep more things related to Army in the shop so that people would buy it & keep it in their home.

I felt really great & proud about our Army. Do take your kids to see this place for sure
