“Must stop if you have kids”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

It is a simple museum of Soviet era aviation but is a great way to entertain the kids since they can get into some of the displays .

“Interesting!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were brought here by a student of the National Aviation University, and were given a private tour.

The grounds are not exceptionally well kept, but if the weather is nice it's a good way to spend a few hours outside of downtown Kiev.

“Nice open air place to spend helf a day with children”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Nice open air museum of real planes and helicopters just next to the Julyany (Kyiv) Airport .
Entrance ticket is 2 EUR for an adult. For extra 0.5 EUR you can go inside of some of the exhibits.
Security guy was really nice (which is not always the case for Ukraine) and let my 3 years son and his friend to take their bicycles in.
Most of the exhibits you can touch or even get on the top of them, so the children were happy and impressed.
Another interesting feature - at the far end of the museum through the dividing wire netting you can watch the planes taking off from Julyany airport.

“A very interesting place to visit”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This open-air museum is very close to the Zhuliany airport, however it is not easy to find or get to by public transport. Actually i got a taxi to get there and on my return have used a bus to get to Vokzalna metro station. The museum staff do not speak English however they were very helpful and kind enough, while trying to explain and give me details of which bus to take and where to stop.
The entrance fee is very small, as well as the extra fee to enter and have photos inside a number of the planes. The collection is big enough (around 80-90 exhibits - military, passenger, helicopters etc) mostly old Soviet style. The signs are both in ukrainian and english language and very helpful to understand what is the exhibit in front of you.
It is not one of the famous tourist attractions of Kiev however I really had a very good time there (have spent around 2-3 hours to visit the whole place) and of course recommended!!!
