    Spending a day on the "Patriot" (see relevant. Review) on the last day in Moscow I got up early, gave up things at the station, so you do not hurry. Ahead was the 12:00 of free time and I became prikidyvat-how to spend the day ... 5 of those military and technical museums that I have not visited, at once abandoned Museum in Padikovo (only on weekends). Remained the choice of either Museum t-34 in Sholohovo and at the exhibition space or aviation in Monino plus in the dawn. The choice was made in favor of the air force and anti-aircraft defenses, because of transport-geographical logistics. Train for 70 minutes domchala me to Monino. The main disadvantage is the road from the train to the Museum. Leisurely step-half an hour. Time was, the weather is good, but ... The 5-day walking to museums-the challenge is walking distance. The museum itself is gorgeous. Except that in preparation for the day of the AIR FORCE shut down one Hall. But there have been several valuable items, including the legendary aerocobra (airplane Pokryshkina if anyone not in the know). In General, the strong Museum "four plus. And it would be good to take care of the Monino administration bus or minibus from the station to the Museum.

    This museum in Monino is approximately 48 km North-East of Moscow. It includes 100-plus mainly military Russian aircraft. Among other things, Antonov, MiG, Mil and Tupolev. The planes and helicopters are very nicely drawn up and are beautiful to photograph. The entrance fee was in July 2017:200 rubles (about 3 euro). Here you can a lot of hours ' sweet '. There are also some civilian aircraft. The most beautiful is the Tupolev TU-144 with registration CCCP-77106 in the colors of Aeroflot. There are of these supersonic TU-144 in total 17 aircraft built. They are not only 7. There are two damaged in an accident and the other 8 are, as far as is known, junking to ' coke cans '. There is a large outdoor area, some indoor halls and a souvenir shop where your cash is the only accepted payment method. As far as is known in July 2017, the museum is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 9 am.

    Visited Monino for the 3rd time after visits in 2006 and 2008. What a fabulous improvement. New building, new hangars, loads of aircraft restored or in restoration. Souvenir shop, barbecue food and ta...  more »

  • Awesome museum! As someone who's deeply interested in war history, especially Russia's, this museum not only proved to be highly informative, but also well-organized and quite fun! The museum offers a large exhibition of historical military equipment and historical moments of not only the Russian army, but also other armies that were involved in its history. The museum has vendors that will sell souvenirs, a World War II themed cafe which can give you the option of eating the same food that Soviet soldiers have during the war (and it's still quite good!), bathrooms, and a large yard filled with life-sized vehicles used by the Russian army, both antique and modern. This is probably the best museum that I've ever been to. Don't hesitate to check it out, especially if you're a history or military enthusiast!
  • Best air museum i have ever seen. It is bit russian style but it create the right atmosphere. Aviaton fans will enjoy.
  • Friendly staff, some of the most exotic aircraft in the world on display
  • Great to walk amongst some iconic planes. While some where looking weathered, was a lot of work going on.
  • Planes are great, but it's conditions are terrible. A must see if you want to know more about USSR aviation.
