One can reach the museum via road and Delhi Metro. The nearest metro station is Dwarka Sector 21 metro station. You may also board private buses plying between Palam and Mahipalpur. The museum has a dedicated parking facility for those who visit by their own vehicles.
The Museum entrance features an indoor display gallery that contains historic photographs, memorabilia, uniforms and personal weapons of the Indian Air Force from its inception in 1932. The gallery leads to a hangar exhibiting small aircraft and Air Force inventory like anti-aircraft guns, vehicles and ordnance. Larger aircraft are exhibited outside the hangar. This outdoor gallery contains aircraft that also displays several war trophies, radar equipment and captured enemy vehicles.
The Vintage Aircraft Flight services some rare aircraft and maintains them in an airworthy condition. These aircraft are not open to the general public for viewing. Large transport aircraft are stored on the apron of the airbase due to lack of space. These aircraft are displayed only on the annual Air Force Day. The Museum also has a small souvenirs corner.

Neat and clean place. Location is also good. Nice place for friends and family together. Administration is also good.... Parking is available opposite to museum but lots of dust and zigzag surface...
