  • The State Aviation Museum, situated next to the domestic airport, is well worth a visit given Ukraine's long history of producing both aircraft and pilots. Ideal for a sunny day, given the aircraft are all out in the open, most of the aircraft have descriptions in English which is useful. You can go inside a small number of aircraft including a UN Transport Helicopter. Some of the aircraft go as far back as 1910. Entry is about two dollars.
  • Certainly the must visit place. Plenty of aircrafts, helicopters, hydroplans and even vintage cars. Children feel relaxed, excited and enthusiastic there. Got a pleasure of being there.
  • Excellent outdoor museum, BUT make sure that you book a taxi for the return to your hotel. I got some very skilled help with trying to find a taxi. And finally I had to take the local bus (busline 220) toward the city and then walk to a Metro(subway station)
  • Interesting place. Children would like it. You can make good photos here
