    The Central Air Force Museum
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Leave your central Moscow hotel, take a metro ride towards Moscow railway station to take your journey to Monino, a small town east of the capital. The Central Air Force Museum is one of the world’s largest aircraft museums, the building covers some 49 acres (20 hectares) – about the equivalent of 18 football pitches – meaning there’s a lot of aviation history to discover inside. On arrival, head straight in and start exploring with your guide – a former military pilot – and a translator. Many Russian museums don’t allow photos to be taken inside, but your entrance ticket has a special photo permission, meaning you can snap as many photos of vintage airplanes and helicopters as you like! The most interesting part of the museum is a section dedicated to aircraft from the time of the Cold War – planes that impressed and frightened most of the world at the time. See Ilya Muromets, the largest aircraft of the 20th century, and Tupolev-144 – a Soviet-era SST (Supersonic Transport Aircraft). Hear tales from your pilot guide about the days when these planes were used and see Cold War-era spy equipment and artifacts, too. After your walking tour, enjoy some free time inside the Central Air Force Museum to explore at your own pace. Besides the aircraft and artifacts on show, the museum is also home to a large library, showing films about the planes. Return to Monino railway station at the pre-arranged time to take your way back to Moscow. Your tour ends at the railway station in Moscow. ITINERARY: 08:40 - Hotel pick up by the guide. Metro ride to Moscow railway station. 09:50 - Take a fast speed train to Monino 10:50 - Arrival to Monino 11:30 - 13:45 - Private tour of Central Air Force Museum in Monino 14:00 - 15:00 - Lunch (own expense) 15:15 - Take a fast speed train back to Moscow 16:15 - Tour ends at the railway station in Moscow. Your guide will gladly advise how to get to the desired place in the city.
