As a lot of people have said this is an aviation delight if you are into aviation then this is fantastic, if your not then you may be better finding something your style.

As I have an interest in aviation I thought it would be interesting to visit this place. Is a bit out of town but fairly easy to get there. Bus no. 220 departs frequently just 100m from Metro station 222. Take bus 220 to the terminus, which is at the museum entrance. After waking up the guy in the ticket... More

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
