  • Went with my pal and wanted to visit and we were not disappointed. They were even filming while we were there. Great open space and able to look around some of the aircraft. Well worth a visit  more »
  • As an aviation geek I loved this place. Chocked full of Soviet era aircraft, both military and civilian, each with a little plaque giving basic information. For less than $4 entry it's well worth a visit
  • Situated inside the building for Zhulyany Airport, the State Aviation Museum is a few kilometres southwest of the city centre. Anyone with an eye for aircraft or Soviet hardware will be in heaven here. The museum opened in 2003 on the 100th anniversary of the first manned flight. It’s the second largest museum of its kind in former Soviet countries and has a growing fleet of aircraft, which numbered over 70 at the last count. You can inspect Ilyushins, Antonovs, Sukhois, Tupolevs, Yakovlevs and of course, aircraft produced by the fabled Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau (MiGs). The size of some of the helicopters may catch you by surprise, like the Mi-24, which is both a gunship and a transport for eight passengers
  • It was very cool , many planes out there but the only sad thing is that we couldn’t go inside the planes except for one or two. There is also a souvenir place to get toys 🧸:)
  • A excellent place where u can see all series of Russian aircrafts (commercial/fighter).Only thing they need improvement by providing Local guide/Audio guiding.
  • Nice interesting place.... For baby really interesting. Try the simulator rally funny!!
