  • Located near the Riga International Airport. So I figured that assembled this collection of helicopters and planes just a fan. On a fairly small area they have him stand in the open air. and to a large extent from this collection you can make excellent exposure. the Museum exhibits many interesting stories. Visit should, all the more so because it does not take a lot of time.

  • 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.
