Awesome museum for plane fans. It almost includes all soviet era planes. I am a little surprised that they don' they don't have Su-27(Only one Su-27 is available in Ukraine in Kharkiv ), and An-12(This is quite common). The An 71 madcap is really impressive....More

My preschool age god-daughter delighted with the visit. There're not only historical planes and helicopters. This open-air museum is located near the operating runway of the Kiev Zhuliany airport. So you can see how planes take off and land! My little tip: take a cab...More

Have returned 3 times over several years. Was always great, they have added and renovated several planes over the last years. A really underrated place in Kyiv, great for anyone interested in planes.

A perfect place to spend a few hours for adults and children. You can see the history of the Soviet Aviation for a long period, including military and civil aircraft.

Great collection of soviet planes, many of them made in Ukraine. The museum is in utter disrepair as are some of the exhibits but it all adds to the feeling of a bygone era.

Spend a few hours here and it was totally worth the money! So many interesting aircrafts to look at and see inside. Pay the extra to see the interiors is my best tip. It costs next to nothing to see them and it’s a blast...More

After taking the trolley bus 9 to the airport, then walking about 1 kilometre you arrive at the museum. It is ok and nice to see the history here, but it is not that great

Sounds like a perfect plan. The museum is not very big though a good collection most of them are from the Soviet era. 90 minutes is not enough but yes it is possible to walk entire area and take some snaps. Most of the... More

If you just jump in a taxi you will pay a ridiculous fare (for Kyiv standards) I always find it beneficial to have a coffee in one of the many cafes and ask them to call you a taxi. It is much cheaper so you won't get ripped... More
