  • Must visit place if you live aviation. They’ve got everything you can imagine from soviet times. Also offering in cabin visit to some of their tupolevs. Very valuable experience for a dime. Get here is so easy , you can even walk from the terminal. They have a little hill as well if you wish to do some plane spotting . Sikorsky airport isn’t the main airport of Kiev so there isn’t to many traffic in there
  • One of the best collections of Soviet aircraft and rotorcraft I have ever seen. Also a few other trucks and missile launchers. It is open air, so check the weather and maybe wear a jacket or bring an umbrella.
  • Interesting place if you are into aviation. Getting here I would recommend taxi/Uber.
  • Nice aviation museum with many many aircrafts. Especially very nice are women sitting in some open aircrafts, very talkative, unfortunately just in Ukrainian, but still they were very nice.
  • Nice museum with massive selection of Soviet planes and helicopters. However, beware that the basic entrance fee does not include entrance to some massive planes which is definitely worth it (and costs next to nothing) so make sure to buy it upon entrance. Unfortunately, no member of staff speaks any English and they are a bit grumpy..
