This museum has a large and constantly growing collection of (rare) Russian aircraft. Most of the exhibits are very well maintained and some are open for visit inside (against a few extra Grivna). Next to the museum is Zhulyani airport so every now and then airplanes are taxiing by and taking off from very close to the museum. On the... More

Aviation museum keeps a lot of exhibits which are close to the second active airport Kyiv and this gives you special atmosphere. Besides you can see a lot of load-aircrafts, helicopters, the huge Ruslan aircraft, naked airplane engine and more. Location in the... More

There are so many fantastic aircraft here MiG's Antonov's, from before the cold war. Really is fantastic to see so many aircraft and be able to get... More

As I have an interest in aviation I thought it would be interesting to visit this place. Is a bit out of town but fairly easy to get there. Bus no. 220 departs frequently just 100m from Metro station 222. Take bus 220 to the terminus, which is at the museum entrance. After waking up the guy in the ticket... More

If you are passionate about planes and you want to see a nice part of Sovietic planes and what they created, this is a nice place and a must see. Fares are not high, you have BAR with beer and water inside. If you want to see it choose a NOT HOT day. The museum is outside and you will... More

I loved this place! Walking around these old Soviet era birds was an amazing experience for me, someone who grew up during the 70's and 80's modern era of the cold war. Dripping with history and well kept, the aircraft lines are beautiful in their functional and stark contrast to western aircraft of the same era. Only $3 to walk... More

Too much planes to make a good picture, but collection is excellent - includes jets, props, choppers and even UAVs. Some planes you can get inside. Great collection and must see for any aviation fan
