  1. Salutations chers amis russes,

    Je suis totalement séduit par ce site extraordinaire sur lequel je viens de passer près de 6 heures. Vos photos sont tellement dépaysantes, et il y en a pour tous les goûts…
    Dommage cependant qu’il manque de clarté. Mais ce n’est pas très grave, l’important étant qu’il existe.
    Merci mille fois !
    Vive la France, vive la Russie !

    Priviet Russian friends,

    I am totally in love with this extraordinary website on which I’ve just spent close to 6 hours. Your pictures are so astonishing and exotic (by exotic I mean it’s so different from my everyday scenery !!), and there are for all tastes and all subjects…
    It’s too bad though that it’s a labyrinth and not very clear… But it doesn’t matter, the most important is that it exists !
    Thank you a lot, whoever created it !

    Oh…

    • I did a little internet search, this museum is in the area of Zhulyani airport, in the outskirts of Kiev. Will definately visit it next time i’ll be in Ukraine. Does anyone know if it’s still open to public?

  3. Very old technics, may be 1/4 of these models stands on military duty in Russia.. too bad that Ukrainian government nowadays tries to make a Reich in Ukraine.. i think that these planes and helis are accessible not for a long time.. if you wanna see it live, you should hurry

    Silvère Milion, your words are pleasnat to read. Thanks. vive la France)

  5. I saw this article at englishrussia.com and decided to visit this amazing museum during last visit to Kiev, few weeks ago. Even my wife who is Ukrainian was unaware of this place, she said “seems you know about Kiev better than me” 🙂

    So a few facts for visitors. It is situated near Zhulyani airport, 1st Medova str. There is a bus stop just in front of entrance but I forgot to mention bus number. By car is about 15-20 mins from center. There are 3 tickets sold: for entrance , for getting into planes and for taking photos. The latter two are optional but the “full package” doesn’t cost more than 4 euros. Unfortunately the ticket seller doesn’t speak english, neither exists any English price list, however airplane information plates are both on ukrainian and english. Museum is open every day.

    If you have optional ticket, you can get into IL-82 and some helicopters and even try pilot’s seat! Seems sometimes IL-86 is open to public but not on the day I visited it. There is full freedom of taking photos (again with optional ticket) inside or outside airplanes.

    Another interesting fact was that in some corner of the big terriority, some guys in military suits were playing paintball. Of course, this area was secured so nobody could be trapped in crossfire by accident. 🙂

  6. It the not Russian museum is the Ukrainian museum of aviation. And author of site fervent AntiUkrainian and misleads you.
