This museum is a bit out of the way, so you'll need to get there by taxi or bus (not handy to the subway), but it's worth it if you have the time. I'm not a plane geek, but I'm an avid photographer and I had a ball here. You can take photos outside old planes. You can take photos... More

It is located a bit far from the city, but if you are interested in planes, especially old soviet planes, it surely has things to offer to you!

I was there twice. 5 years ago and in past year (2015) Most of aircrafts are from the past century, but they are still interesting and some of them look very majestically. If you like aviation, it is the best place to visit in kiev. Price was lower then 1$

Excellent collection of some rare aviation machines. Those who have any interest in the sky will have an excellent time and will have memories for a lifetime. Can compare this to the Henry Ford museum in Detroit but with planes.

Extensive collection of cold war former Soviet military and Civilian aircraft. Ideal place to visit if the weather is good. Little areas to shelter if it rains or in high winds. Limited description of each aircraft in English. Each of the aircraft in which one is permitted entry is dominated by a babouschka, beware of incurring their wrath if one... More

For example Soviet-built aircraft which operated only in Soviet time - have Soviet livery, but those Soviet-built aircraft which was in operation some time after Ukraine independence... More

It's a nice museum and some people speak good English and can tell a lot about the planes so that was a nice surprise. Only surrounding of the planes is typical Soviet Union style.

An outstanding display of Soviet Union aircraft. If you served in the military during Cold War days and studied Soviet aircraft, you will be stunned by this collection. Everything you ever learned about in one collection. You can't miss this if you have an aviation connection to this era and these Soviet Union aircraft.
