VIRAAT HALL

The entrance to the indoors of the museum, is through a 'Hatch' of a ship ! On stepping in carefully through the hatch, the visitor is greeted by the 'Sensors', 'Sonar', 'Sonobuoy' and 'Armament' Rooms on either side of the corridor. Adjacent to these rooms, you will come across the 'Hall of Silence' where you can pay your homage to the Naval Warriors who sacrified their life for the nation. Walking across the corridor you will find the 'Hall of Fame' holding interesting artifacts donated by various Flag Officers. On completion of visit to these sections, you walk ahead to enter the 'Viraat Hall'. The hall boasts a scaled, wooden model of the aircraft carrier INS Viraat, complete with its 'Birds' on its deck and hangars. Visitors can use the interactive touch-screen kiosk in this hall to learn more about the exploits of this mighty aircraft carrier.
