Had the privilege of getting a private tour of the museum. Great exhibition, with the largest collection of mig-21s in Europe. There is also a new touchscreen system (also in English) which gives a detailed overview of all the pieces of military hardware on exhibition.

We came here in the middle of July. Checked the website to ensure it was going to be open. When we arrived there was a note on the fence suggesting the place was going to be closed the entire summer. Awesome.

Highlights of the collection are MiG-29s (one completely restored that allows a climb up to the cockpit) and variants of T-80s. Limited explanations and almost nobody...More
