  • We drove all the way to see the museum during the visiting hours. At the gate, a bored guard pointed us to a note printed by the staff that announced they had decided to "close earlier due to the heat...  more »

  • Planes are awesome. Regardless of how old they are or what types they are. The museum has a lot of USSR planes starting with MiG 17 up to MIG 29 as well as romanian planes from WW2 and post WW2 (IAR 93 is one if them). They are poorly kept though. The planes are in open air exposed to the weather and they begun to rust. You can also see anti aircraft weaponry from the communist era, helicopters and utility planes. Very disappointing that they don;t have an AN2. The interior museum is very decent and well organized. Highly recommend you to visit this underrated museum.
  • The museum closes at 18:00 durig summer, just so you know! Edit*** : it closes at 14:00 during the summer, till september
  • A strange and musty old museum, on my two visits I was the only person there, a lady came round with me and turned the lights on and off. Lots of old planes, the IAR 81 in the main hanger was the main attraction for me. Outside there is a yard full of old eastern block fighters, not well looked after, and a few anti-aircraft guns that my kids loved and climbed all over, traversing and elevating the barrels and defending Bucharest against an alien invasion!
  • Very good good and comprehensive, if you manage not to be seen by a guard you can even climb into the engines of a MiG-29. In case you want to see the canopies from inside I'd advise bringing a wire cutter.
  • Great collection of MIG fighter jets! MIG 15, 17, 19, 21 and 29 and many other aircraft. Most pictures on google maps show only the un-restored planes that are kept outside. Inside there are many carefully restored MIG's and other early aircraft. Go soon, their website states they are under threat from the Romanian government to close. I have worked 4 years in Bucharest only one block from the museum and did not know it existed! It was like stepping back in time to the Cold War. Check it out!
