If you are passionate about planes and you want to see a nice part of Sovietic planes and what they created, this is a nice place and a must see. Fares are not high, you have BAR with beer and water inside. If you want to see it choose a NOT HOT day. The museum is outside and you will... More

I loved this place! Walking around these old Soviet era birds was an amazing experience for me, someone who grew up during the 70's and 80's modern era of the cold war. Dripping with history and well kept, the aircraft lines are beautiful in their functional and stark contrast to western aircraft of the same era. Only $3 to walk... More

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.
