  • The aircraft in China, it is also many exhibits fighters, such as focusing on. The base free of charge. Ticket Office at the special exhibit room 20 Yuan admission fee to pay. Force is not a special exhibit, but actual is in front of the great.

  • Want to go take a look at someone, and so went out about 1 in Buri as information officer. Has come, and I can't like airplane! With subtle differences and become beautiful part and find it is fun. My favorite airplane is Russia's b-16, sharks face becomes America's p-40. And will not post the name Spitfire. Over time, thoroughly recommended tours.

  • Really interesting place! Well done Chinese, have created this wonderful Museum. Is far faster and easier to ride with a driver, and combined with visits to the other country attractions. Very informative look at airplanes in life-size! Really enjoyed

  • More air planes then I've seen in my life. Also possible to jump into one. Highly recommended museum!
  • Please take Bus No. 912 at Andingmen station, and get off at the gate of Aviation Museum directly.
  • By organization and upkeep, it's not on par with other major established museums in the US, UK or Russia, but it does have some rare exhibits - well, where else can boast that they've a Mi-6 and a D-21 (alas as wreckage, because it was found crashed back then) all within the same compound? Especially the latter, it's the only one outside the US. By my memory, they actually have plenty more other stuff still sit in storage, and have been slowly restoring some for display. Given the size of the compound, it can accommodate more exhibits. Now, if only they can restore more of their exhibits into better condition...
  • Is an awesome place, this museum include many aircrafts, especially you can see many old fighters during СССР era. I will highly recommand this place for an aeronautical fans.
  • Its great to be able to get as close as you want to so many aircraft, bombs and missiles.
