  • The museum is just a short walk from the Main Riga Airport terminal. Arrive at the gate ring the bell and an older gentleman on a bicycle arrives pay 7 Euros and take yourself on a self guided tour wi...  more »
  • Definitely worth a visit ! If you got time to kill between 2 flights (you can reach it from the airport in less than 5 mn by walk) or just before flying out of Riga, plan an average of 1 hour visit.  more »
  • We visited before we caught the plane home. It's was about 7 euro each to get in but well worth it. Some excellent examples of Communist era planes and helicopters on display.  more »

  • A very interesting aviation exhibit. This isn't like a typical museum. It is a fenced field full of mostly Soviet aircraft and helicopters. The price to get in is 7 euros, and then you are free to roam around the displayed aircraft. There are aircraft names and specifications displayed next to the exhibits, but if more information is desired, the museum website has great information on the displayed pieces. I found it well worth the visit.
  • It's a must, if you like airplanes and to study their design this is an unknown gem of the soviet work. Really go to the airport a couple of hours before and do take a stroll before they sell it for parts
  • Very nice museum. It's practically scrapyard of old aircrafts, but it's very nice designed and interesting. Everybody who loves planes would loved this place.
  • Good old aviation museum with some old Russian planes helicopters!
  • Great museum with a nice collection of Soviet-era aircraft. Also good service.

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
