Yes it's creaky and rusting, it's also really cool

I must say there is nothing inaccurate about the negative reviews already posted, all too true. However on the positive side all the cool bits are still there. Flight desk... read more

With RMB130 what do you expect? I'm impressed with the weapon and radar system. During the 80s all these military weapons information were not accessible, you need a super spies to obtain all these picture. But now, we are lucky can view and touch all these weapons. Yes, I agree some part are rusty, and maybe they can re-create the... More

It could be different to visit a old russian carrier, but not. The price is 150 Yuan and what you get for it ? yes a old carrier with a lot of rust and very bad maintain. A lot of Chinese shop onboard that there have nothing with the vessel to do. Stay on the pier and take free photos.

I must say there is nothing inaccurate about the negative reviews already posted, all too true. However on the positive side all the cool bits are still there. Flight desk, island, missile batteries, hangar, a few aircraft for scale, a view out the bridge windows. All well worth the price of admission in my opinion. There is also a lot... More

Having read so much praise about this attraction I was so so disapointing 130RMB to walk around a scrapped ship. None of the entry fee is used to maintain the ship, it is in a seriously bad condition - i do feel sorry for any of its past crew if they ever managed to visit this now appalling venue. no... More

On the plus side, this decaying heap is in moored in a beautiful location, a kind of planned city with shops, hotels, restaurants and a park. From a historical and nautical standpoint, being able to walk around inside a real naval vessel is interesting, if you're into that kind of thing. On the minus side, the Minsk is slowly rusting...

Trip was 40 minutes by taxi and costed 20 USD. They build a museum with chinese military technology around it. After you visited this, you walk to... More

As a museum, the Minsk is lacking (like 99% of the museums in SZ) but as a piece of history, it is cool to explore. In general it isn't too busy, Yantian is probably the nicest, cleanest, and most peaceful district in the city. Go here before the subway does and the tranquility goes away.

Rusty creaking decommissioned Soviet aircraft carrier. Wander around various levels to the sound of pleasant elevator Muzak and soviet era propaganda films in Chinese. No English language guidance. Make sure you arrange a lift back to Shenzhen City as this thing is miles away, and it is nearly impossible to find a bus or taxi back ( or anyone to... More

Where in the world can you get a chance to board an Aircraft Carrier? Some of the reviewers here have been less than charitable, by highlighting only the decay of this exhibit. Yes it is old, yes it is rusty, but at least it's there and accessible. This is a huge vessel, I'm sure it would be impossible to restore... More
