My husband is interested in US Military aircraft and I thought this would be an interesting excursion during our visit to Moscow. We were not disappointed. It is an impressive collection of planes, some were familiar and some never left the testing phase. Most were...More

It took quite a while to reach this place, as the suburban train needed 1h and 30min to reach Monino from Moscow Yaroslavsky train terminal. Once you arrive there, you can choose between taking taxi or walking for 20min, we choose taxi at first and...More

You definitely need a guided tour here. Guides are big fans of their job. Museum contains almost all samples of russian airforce planes. A lot of them are single samples. One of the world's best aviation museums.

This is a very beautiful and interesting museum. I saw some airplanes there that I can see in the world nowhere else (for example Tu-144,Mi-12,Mig-105,Myasishchev M-50).If you intend to visit this museum you can travel by train, the trip is aproximetly 1 hour from Moscow.

Worth a visit to Moscow, even if you don't go anywhere else. An hour ride on a direct suburban train, and you are in an aviation buff paradise. Planes and helicopters you won't see anywhere else - from the iconic Tu-144 to the monster Mi-12....More

I think they don't charge your camera, at least if you buy a guided tour.
