Nice exhibits but felt more like a propaganda

Plenty of exhibits of retired jets. I forgot whether the entrance fee was 20 or 25 RMB. Everything looks fine and dandy from a distance, just don't look too closely at the... read more

Ah Chinese museums almost same. Everything is plastic and boring. Only some real model of planes worth to see. That's all. Never go there again.

As it's written, it's showing history of shenyang airplane factory. You can see a few old planes and general informations about aviation. But, a big part is just dedicated to the shenyang aircraft factories : the good workers, the good chairman, the official visitors and main steps of development... quite boring except if you work there. Globally not so amazing.... More

Just 24 yuan cab ride and 30 yuan entry fee. A great way to spend a few hours..especially if you are interested in aviation or military history. A good display of mainly jet aircraft and the displays inside are interesting and quite well done. There is some English as well. Well worth a visit.

Getting a great overview about the Chinese Aviation History, especially here in Shenyang. Pitty, most of the explanations are only in Chinese, but lots of real planes, models and pictures.

an inexpensive look at some military static displays showing the basic aircraft, in poor condition in the most part, but still worth the 30p entrance fee sit in a MIG get a feel for the engineers who are working on more modern projects never busy so you can take your time overall worth the time. Reflective of the Mao era... More

Plenty of exhibits of retired jets. I forgot whether the entrance fee was 20 or 25 RMB. Everything looks fine and dandy from a distance, just don't look too closely at the details and you'll be happier. It's worth visiting especially if you are into aircrafts and history.

This museum is for old military air-crafts and here you can touch them, explore them from every corner and even see the cockpits. Moreover, an explanatory exhibition helps you understand various parts and details of an aircraft. Do visit this museum if you are in Shenyang, you do not get such chance anywhere else so easily. Entry fee is 30... More

As has been said before elsewhere, this place is really tucked away and is not well known even by the locals, which is impressive when you think that Shenyang is a major aviation city. The price when we visited was 30yuan an adult and our three-year-old son entered free, Inside the gates is a spacious courtyard which hosts a number... More

This museum is so well hidden ( at Beiling airport) not even my wife and mother in law new about it and they are natives on Shenyang. The museum has two parts, the outside has several planes charting the development of jet planes in China. The inside explains why this museum is in Shenyang and how China developed jet planes....
