Established in the Military Station of Jaisalmer, the unique museum has been designed with the view of honouring the contributions and sacrifices of war heroes, and to highlight their bravery. It also traces the evolution of the Indian Army.

The War Museum is located 10 km short of Jaisalmer on the Jaisalmer - Jodhpur Highway. The inauguration of the museum in the Golden Jubilee Commemoration Year of 1965 Indo Pak War is also a tribute to all soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice in the defence of the motherland.

The museum has two large Information Display Halls, an Audio Visual Room and a souvenir shop. There are a large number of captured war trophies and own vintage equipment on display to include tanks, guns and military vehicles. The Indian Air Force has presented a Hunter aircraft for the museum, which was used during the Battle for Laungewala in 1971 Indo Pak War.

In addition, to commemorate Battle of Laungewala which was fought on 04-05 Dec 1971, a War Memorial has been constructed and inaugurated at the very site where the Pakistani offensive was blunted, with over 179 Pakistani soldiers killed/wounded and 37 Pakistani tanks destroyed.

The murals of the soldiers, whose supreme sacrifice led to victory in the Laungewala battle and the 106 mm Recoilless Gun (main anti tank weapon) employed to destroy a number of Pakistani tanks occupy a place of pride in the memorial. The memorial also has a state of art audio visual theatre for screening the movies on the Battle of Laungewala.

The museum is open on all days including Sundays and public holidays from 9AM to 7PM. The entry for the museum is free. There is a cafeteria on the premises. A large free parking area is also available.
