  • This is a fabulous collection of Soviet aircraft both civil and military arranged in an open park. Well worth a visit. Whether it was because of Covid 19 or time of year I was somewhat disappointed...  more »
  • Wow, what an amazing site! The most impressive collection of cold war aircraft imaginable - its very moving to be in front of technology that could have destroyed the world.  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
