  • I was today for 3 hours at this Museum and I can't believe my enthusiasm into words. This museum is just great. Many aircraft from the Soviet era are exhibited here. Who provides the additional tickets, can go in the aircraft in and in addition to the cabin deck watch also the flight. Staff, which is in the aircraft that tells something about the history of the aircraft and a few technical details. What specifically about this Museum, that also the engines are on display. Small tip for foreign-language: you take a translator.

  • Has a significant collection of Ukrainian and Russian origin aircraft. Allows visitations to the interior of at least 5 aircraft. The price is affordable!

  • Although Kiev not being an easy place to turn, get over to the Museum was uneventful even circular bus. Inside a large part of Soviet and some models used to date, sensational may be near machines that never dreamed of, without hearing the noise of them.

  • Awesome selection of airplanes from the former USSR. If you like planes at all, you'll love this place. Even if you don't, you'll still find it interesting. Huge helicopters here too.
  • It is outdoor exhipition so it is better to visit it when the wether is comfortable. Exhibition has a lot of interesting military and civil soviet aircrafts
  • My kids had loved this place. Theter are plety aircrafts over there.
  • Interesting place to visit. You'll see big amount of commercial and military airplanes designed during 20th century.
  • Great collection of soviet aircraft. Some of them are available to visit inside (yes, you can get onboard Tu-154 or Il-62).
