  • Located not far from the airport. Exhibits a lot. We were on a weekday-people didn't have. The owner of the Museum held us a wonderful trip with humor and stories. Special thanks to him for it. And invited us to climb into the cockpit of a fighter. But you can also go to the largest helicopter in the cab to the pilots. On the territory of the Museum there are machines, warheads, kukuruzniki, black boxes, collection of cameras, binoculars, etc. We were deliriously happy, and will certainly go there again.

  • 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.
  • Great museum with a nice collection of Soviet-era aircraft. Also good service.
  • Amazing variety of soviet era aircraft. Some could use a bit of restoration, but the decadence is charming in a way. A must see in Riga.
  • Awesome transport helicopter.
