  • We visited the out door museum in February and there was a fair bit of snow which was to be expected. The planes are neatly laid out and you are allowed to access them very close. Some have interior a...  more »
  • Take your time, take the road an hour or half an hour by taxi and you will find yourself in one of the best aviamuzeev in the world. First, reasonable price for tickets. Don't hesitate, grab your tickets immediately in the Hall with the engines, as well as on the Tu-154. Secondly. don't wait for spring-summer. In winter there are cleaning the track people a little bit, and machinery worth-Kaif. Oh, and enjoy samples of aviation and aircraft and helicopters is always beautiful. "Ugly machine does not fly," He said. His machine, incidentally, is also available. Civil, military, trucks-everything is there. Everyone will find the bird.

  • Are there with children on a regular basis and we do not get bored. This open-air museum-a huge number of planes and helicopters civil aviation and the military. There are good guides and the opportunity to climb aboard the aircraft (charged separately). Sometimes there are big events. What to look for-days visit. The Museum is open every day. Of weaknesses-lack of cafes. Water, ice cream you can buy at a kiosk in the Museum. The Museum is very clean and well cared for. Nearby runway so that you can still see and close to the aviation work:).

  • 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).
