An open Museum with Tanks, Submarines and other Machinery in the south. Traveling takes around 40 mins from the University and is possible with the number 183. Very interesting POI for History enthusiasts.

Apart from the interesting Soviet military equipment, which is on display, this museum has more than 20K exhibits - some of them extremely rare. It is intelligently displayed, showing in a very detailed manner the history of WW2 in this region as well as an overview of the Soviet - Nazi war from beginning to end. It used to be part of the Soviet propaganda machine, but not anymore. Make sure you take Alla (who is extremely knowledgeable and fluent English speaker) as your guide - less than 4 USD for a very educational 2 hours (no matter how big the group is). The last part is a magnificent observatory of the Dnieper and Parcheska Lavra. Well worth for those who want to have a relatively balanced view of what really happened in WW2.

Quite a way out of town and difficult to get to by bus I would think.
Lots of interesting military things tanks, a plane, a submarine, lots of big guns even a navel mine sweeper and a armoured train, it's a little run down and untidy like most things in Ukraine
But worth a look.

I was amazed to see a full size Submarine in a park! But it I a bit hard to find if you are not familiar with Odessa. Call a cab they are cheep. Many other displays in this park that make it a must see for WWII buffs

Kids enjoyed fun ride on little tanks. They love to come to open air army museum. One day they would love to find out more about Odessa history
