I was there twice. 5 years ago and in past year (2015) Most of aircrafts are from the past century, but they are still interesting and some of them look very majestically. If you like aviation, it is the best place to visit in kiev. Price was lower then 1$

Excellent collection of some rare aviation machines. Those who have any interest in the sky will have an excellent time and will have memories for a lifetime. Can compare this to the Henry Ford museum in Detroit but with planes.

Extensive collection of cold war former Soviet military and Civilian aircraft. Ideal place to visit if the weather is good. Little areas to shelter if it rains or in high winds. Limited description of each aircraft in English. Each of the aircraft in which one is permitted entry is dominated by a babouschka, beware of incurring their wrath if one... More

It's a nice museum and some people speak good English and can tell a lot about the planes so that was a nice surprise. Only surrounding of the planes is typical Soviet Union style.

An outstanding display of Soviet Union aircraft. If you served in the military during Cold War days and studied Soviet aircraft, you will be stunned by this collection. Everything you ever learned about in one collection. You can't miss this if you have an aviation connection to this era and these Soviet Union aircraft.

This was a perfect place for aviation enthusiasts and I suspect even non-avgeeks may enjoy a bit of old Soviet history that goes with these exhibits. First of all you need to get to it. The 220 minibus goes there from Demivska Metro station which is fine if you can find the appropriate bus stop. I couldn't and luckily found... More

This museum holds one of the best collections of USSR era airplanes and helicopter in the world. You can see Jumbo jets everywhere, but where else can you find Tupolev 142, the fastest turbo prop plane in the world? Mi 26 helicopter or An71 are rare specialities either. You can also visit 6 airplanes inside, including cockpits. Tickets are very... More
