National War Museum/ National War Memorial

 

The National war museum alias National War Memorial situated at Pune Cantonment near the Pune Railway station, is a patriotic site. It is dedicated to the Indian soldiers, who lost their lives for the nation. The most notable thing about the museum is that it was built by raising funds from the public. Express Citizens' Forum an organization of Pune citizens set up the War Memorial Fund for its construction. The public contributed to the fund whole-heartedly and finally the foundation of the National War Museum was laid down in November 1977. The museum was inaugurated and opened for the public in October 1998. The monument is made of stone pillars measuring 25-ft high. Main attraction of the museum is the display of MIG 23 BN, which was used in the Kargil War. The museum opens to public from 9. am to 6. p. m.
