  • Thought it would be interesting to not the son dragged. The Museum is located on the outskirts of Kiev, not convenient. But when arrived, very surprised such a huge machine! They are simply staggering. The impression that the designers have any complexes. If you have kids who are interested in technology, drag here safely!

  • Fighters, bombers, airlift, and helicopters, if the Soviets flew it you can probably find it here! Civil aviation is also well represented across their sprawling expanse of land. A must do for an avia...  more »
  • Superb excursion for a low price less than one euro per person. Supplement to board some airliners. Soviet aircraft in majority. View on the tarmac of Eni. Easy by taxi or VTC. Recommended for families.

  • 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
  • One of the coolest open air aviation museums available. Very close to airport, try visiting before or after your flight. Among others, mig21 mig23, "bear"...
