Visited INS Vikrant docked in the Bombay harbour. It has now been converted into a Naval musuem. It was a worthwhile trip, got to see the innards of a ship for the first time. That too a mammoth aricraft carrier. Very well maintained by the Navy, and a comprehensive tour is allowed, which takes more than an hour. Timelines and details about Naval combats of the Indian navy, plus lots of pictures of various events are kept. One almost visualizes the life inside a ship.
A must see , and there is a lot to learn for the other musuems in the country on how historical stuff should be preserved and displayed.
