  • We decided to visit the Riga Aviation Museum on arrival to Riga in May 2017 after seeing it advertised online. The museum itself is just to the right of the exit of the arrivals hall. You need to pres...  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.
