This place even has 3 classic Back Fire Super Sonic Bombers !! Self guided tour....If you think you have seen airplanes ( somoloti ) you have not seen nothing until you spend a few classic hours here......If you can locate the grounds.....a marshutka will take you right to the gate... I walked....

Too much planes to make a good picture, but collection is excellent - includes jets, props, choppers and even UAVs. Some planes you can get inside. Great collection and must see for any aviation fan

Tremendous line-up of Soviet bomber types. But my highlight was a Be-12 seaplane. A little too tightly packed for really good photos.

I loved how laid back this place was, all the places are parked up, maybe one info board each, thats all. No gimmicks like graphics, or audio guides, just a big apron and the planes. /simples. Oh if youre planning on walkng to the adjacent airport, get a taxi, it's a pretty hairy walk :p

Fantastic! It was great seeing so many beautiful russian planes. Many nice rareties. You can even go into the Illusion 96 and a helikopter but have to pay extra for it. Bus stop right infront of the museum.

A full array of Russian aircraft including a cruise missile. My husband could have stayed there for days. You can also climb onboard several of the aircraft and pretend you're a pilot.

This is a great museum with many interesting aircraft of many types. Civilian and military fixed wing and helicopters of many different kinds and years are on display. It is a little out there, but a taxi ride was no problem. Getting back to the hotel was a little more difficult, and we walked quite a way before finding a... More

Huge museum with lots of important aircraft built in Soviet Union, both military and civil. It is an open-air museum and you can visit cabins of Ilyushin IL-62 and Tupolev 154. All were very well maintained on their displays, it is a very nice program for the whole family, of especial interest for children and aviation enthusiasts. It had snow... More

We took the metro to Demiivska and jumped in a taxi there. He promtly drove us to the Aeroport Kyiv Zhuliany instead of the museum, but it was only 1,5 km away so we walked there in a couple of minutes. I suggest you use the adress listed above if taking a taxi.. The museum is cheap and massive, sporting... More
