Museums and Archives:Armed Forces Museums

Name: Editor Have you ever wanted to join the armed forces? Should the armed forces be more open to allowing access to the public for educational purposes? Do you think the armed forces need to do more to encourage quality Indian talent to join?

Do these museums have interesting relics of wars, military operatipons etc. Would love to view these things?

Informative displays are fine, but you need genuine relics to complete the museum experience

I think that most museums can have some interactive displays using screens, videos , power points or some ambient sounds.

A nice article. Inspired me to go see some of the places that were nearby for me. Funny how I never bothered till I read this article. Thanks!

I had never heard about these armed forces museums before as far as Ican recall. These would be a great way for civilians to learn something about the miilitary and how it operates. This is something that is so distant, as far as most of the civilian population is concerend.

Hi, I' m Mike, from the States. In the US we have something called Fighter town in which there are simulations of navy and airforce jets where people can actively participate in. Does India have anything similar. It might be interesting if they had something like that for the public.

No, I don´ t think we have anything that comes anywhere near close. I once saw a video about fighter town on Discovery Channel. Man that was so cool! I envy you being able to go to that place. This was an interesting article. Didn´ t know we could visit a submarine museum. Was always scared of going up a coning tower to see a submarine. My aunt went in one once. Was invited for a visit by her Navy friends.

I think these museums are excellent ways in persuading our youth to join the armed forces. I wish there was something more interactive some kind of simulation or drill which visitors could participate in, if they could teach you something it would be nice. Why doesnt the navy have helicopter flights off the deck of vikrant for example?

Subject:  Not bad idea but how practical is it?
Its a nice idea but who is going to waste the time and money to do such a thing. You would need active navy personnel for this. As such vikrant is open to the public only during a certain period, i expect for all other times the number of crew on board must be a real skeleton crew.

National Railway Museum
Has modern rail travel has lost the romance of the yesteryears? In what ways do you think India should improve its railways? Should India focus more efforts on luxury rail travel? What do you think will be the favoured mode of travel in future?... - Editor [View Message]
I saw it
I remeber visiting this place when I was a kid. The different engines fascinated me and gave me an ambition of becoming a train driver. Although I never became one, this article takes me back to my childhood. Even today, I enjoy looking at trains ... - Gaurav [View Message]
Travelling in the jet age!
How many of us travel by trains today? Hardly 10% of the population. With plane tickets so affordable now, most children start travelling in planes from toddlerhood. They have never seen the inside of a train compartment, and most probably never will…In such times, of what interest is a museum of train??... - Sonia [View Message]
Re: Travelling in the jet age!
I agree that many children born today suffer from the fate you spoke of! But that populace hardly equals the figures you quote. Most of India still reside in the B level towns and villages, and plane tickets are still a luxury there. Sure, in Delhi maybe the museum will not have many native Indian visitors. But make it mobile and I guarantee you a huge response.... - Kamyani [View Message]
Romancing trains
I so agree with Kamyani. Bilkul sahi farmaya aapne…People who love travelling will invariably have a slot in their hearts for trains. Nothing can replace it. That' s why the Eurorail and others are still very popular in nations that can afford to do most travelling by cars or planes only.... - Tyagi [View Message]
