The State Aviation Museum is close to Zhulyany Airport and relatively easily accessible. For 100 Hryvnia (about £3-4) each, we were able to explore lots of Soviet and Ukrainian aircraft and to go inside the planes. Would definitely recommend

Amazing to see in the flesh some of the icons of the Cold War. Some of the aircraft are open to tour inside but you have to make sure you get the right tickets at the entrance.

I know it's an aviation museum, the clue is in the name, but there was a recent car collection on display there and I really wanted to know if it was a temporary display or permanent.

Place frequently changes schedules, practices and may just plainly NOT follow any schedule at all. However, it is mostly OK. As of today, Tuesdays you MAY enter, but not get inside any aircrafts. When there, ask to do it... More
