Russian Aircraft Carrier

If you like military stuff you'll love this air craft carrier. You can get a lot closer than you would in a western museum. Worth visiting.

Unique must see attraction
Feb 2016 • Friends
This is possibly the most unique attraction I've seen so far in shenzhen. It's a piece of military history. The conditions are quite good, far from a rust bucket as described in some reviews. You have access to many parts of the ship such as missiles torpedoes engine room flight deck crew quarters etc. There was a Fred 4D movie and an English historic documentary about the ship. Lots of great photo opportunities and great views of Yantian from the flight deck. There are also mig aircraft and helicopters on the flight deck to view. All in all all had a great day. Cost was 120 RMB.

Located in Yantian. Get the 1, 103, 103b bus to Yantian district government bud stop

Perfect for enthousiasts

While the entry fee was quite large, I did enjoy visiting this old Russian Aircraft Carrier. We easily spend a good 2 hours there. People who enjoy military things will have a lot of fun.

Relevant for people who understand Cantonese
Apr 2015 • Family
The view near the shore looks amazing and is breathtakingly beautiful. Once you pay the hefty fees of 130 RMB and enter, the perspective changes.

The guides inside conduct a tour of the entire ship. But to your dismay the entire tour is in Cantonese. A 4D movie show also in Cantonese. Most signs and trivias are in Cantonese.

Not worth the visit if you don't understand the language. Better to be on shore and take pics along it for free.

The old Russian Aircraft Carrier Minsk in Shenzhen
May 2015 • Family
It's a little out of the way, about 45-50mins from Futian District, but worth a look. The old aircraft carrier looks a little tired now, and is not helped by the various nick-nack shops and food oulets onboard that don't sit too well with this kind of attraction. It's good to see onboard and get a feel of what must of been a beast of the sea back in its day. There is a little signage in English, but largely it's guesswork, and we couldn't see a tour in English. Good to wander about and take some pictures. Don't expect too much! Cost was 430RMB for 2 adults and 2 kids.

Great for Military enthusiastic
Apr 2015 • Solo
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 operation and control rooms with a mock-up equipment. I think the maintenance cost must be quite high. I was there on week day, and hardly see 100 visitors, and think your RMB130 can hardly pay for the staff salary. I'm taking a bus from Lowu Port Bus Terminal, and only cost me RMB3, exactly on the spot. I will definitely visit this museum again, on my next trip to ShenZhen.

no maintain
Feb 2015 • Business
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.

Yes it's creaky and rusting, it's also really cool
Mar 2015 • Friends
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 of the usual Chinese kitschy junk on sale all throughout the vessel as well as a really lame action simulation in a mocked up control room (it was free though). My traveling companions paid for the 4d movie "Minsk Attack" or something to that effect and reported it was not worth the 40 RMB.

So if you are a military enthusiast this is a must see. For me I just love big awesome machines and this certainly fits that description.

A note on getting there, it is super easy from the Yijing subway station. Take exit B, get on the 103, get off at Yantian Zhengfu stop. You can see the Minsk's island poking up above the trees and just walk right to it, about 5 minutes. The bus trip took 30 minutes or so.

Scrap heap
Feb 2015 • Friends
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 highlights no fun had left after an hour or so of complete disappointment. Do not waste your money on this.
