  • Recommended for fans of Aeronautics, adjacent to the airport of Riga is a poorly organized Soviet aeronautical memorabilia store. Too bad because it might be appreciated better.

  • 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.
  • Amazing
  • Remarkable collection of Soviet aviation. A very interesting Museum with objects which are not so easily elsewhere. If you arrive by plane in Riga, it worth to go really the 5 minutes from the Terminal on foot to the Museum.

  • The Museum is more like a warehouse of old aircraft. A whole lot of piles arranged, spares, parts, units, etc. Boy I'd lived here! In some places there are decals. Inside planes and helicopters don't get, everything is closed and salons are inundated with some things. Were with her son (3 years) in August 2015, everyone liked it! Recommend to fans of Soviet aviation.
