  • 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 »

  • For aviation fans (like me) the visit is well worth the travel time to get there from Moscow City: A large selection of Russian military aircraft from between the two world wars to current times. Most of the few indoor exhibits are only with explanations in Russian, most of the outdoor exhibits have English spec sheets, too. The TU-144 is very special to see! We had a great opportunity to enter the fuselage and cockpit of the largest helicopter of the world: A technician let us in through a side door! Impressive!! The entry fee is relatively cheap, the memorabilia shop ok. The lady there very friendly. The travel with the Russian railway from Yaroslavsky station took about an hour and didn't cost much. To the "non-aviation-enthusiast" visitor a warning: The overall maintenance of the place is not exactly outstanding, some of the exhibits are not in a good condition - I guess they're fighting budget problems.
  • Beautiful and amazing museum. It is far from center of Moscow but very much worth the trip. Staff is very helpfull and nice and price is really low. Getting there is also quite an adventure, but don't ge discouraged. If you are coming by train/bus/minibus from the town station north of the museum, expect that the road leading directly to museum (and suggested by google maps navigation) is closed (barricated as the academy closed down) so you will have to walk a bit around throught the town - but it is just 5-10 minutes of walking more. They also have a very well stocked souvenir shop with a wide variety and good prices (from books in english to magnets, badges, dvds, Putin souvenirs, babushkas, t-shirts etc). What is inside of the hangars is kept in good condion but the planes outside are slowly decomposing (it is a sad sight to se MiG 31 kneeling on the grass) so every year the planes will be in worse condition... Hopefully, the museum will get some funding and preserve at least some of the unique planes there as it would really be a shame to lose those parts of history.
  • Outstanding museam, if you love warbirds it's a must see.
  • Visited on august 25 2017. Payed 400 roubles for 2. Nice all russian military aircraft. The place is not really well maintained, neither are the planes, except for the tu 144 Worth the long travel from moscow if you are an aviation fan.
  • Very interesting Russian Air Force museum. Hard to get there because there is no public transportation from railway station to museum and back.
