  • 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.

  • 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).
