State Aviation Museum of Ukraine
State Aviation Museum of Ukraine in Zhuliany is the largest historical and technical museum of the country.
Having started with only 30 vehicles, today museum owns the exposition of nearly 70 aircrafts and helicopters. Another branch – samples of air weapons and drones, as well as an exposition of aircraft engines. The museum presents units of almost all leading aviation construction departments of Soviet period – Tupolev, Yakovlev, Ilyushin, Antonov, Sukhoi, and copies of aircraft of the early twentieth century.
The sources of continuous replenishment of the museum were the airfields, which had decommissioned the vehicles. Major systems still work on many presented aircrafts.
For example, all electronics functions properly, and recently there were engine starts. Due to this does visitors are interested in cockpits of the aircraft Il-62 and Mi-8, because anyone can sit behind the steering control.
The world's largest helicopter Mi-26 is also presented in the museum. It can take on board a little less than 80 people, but the payload affects more than 20 tons. Maximum landing weight is 55 tons. 24 000 horsepower. Before transportation exhibit was cut into 6 parts, each was loaded onto a separate truck and escorted to Kyiv, where he was welded into a single unit.
Special feature to visiting of the museum is a close vicinity to operating airport "Kyiv" (Zhuliany), a runway of which is 100 meters behind the museum. From there take off and landing of planes give an unforgettable impression.
Interesting place to visit. You'll see big amount of commercial and military airplanes designed during 20th century.
My kids had loved this place. Theter are plety aircrafts over there.
One of the best aviation museums in the world. And one of the most interesting museums in Kiev. The exhibition is large and is constantly updated. There are aircraft engines in the cut, a collection of FAB bombs, strategic bombers, the biggest helicopter in the world(MI-26), just a huge IL-76, etc. be Sure to go(and with children and if you like the techniqueaircraft).
A number of fine pieces of Soviet aviation history can be seen here. Only some pf them can be entered and not all are in original condition inside. Nevertheless it is worth a visit - will take about 1-2 hours of your time.
Amazing place, felt like a kid in a candy store
Interesting and informative for adults and children. A lot of exhibits and some of you can go inside and all there is to consider. Clean the grounds. Friendly staff. The ticket price is 50 UAH for adults, children under 7 years free. The entrance to the planes and helicopters from 5 to 10 UAH.
The biggest in Ukraine Museum in aviatekhnika. Almost all models are certainly not new, but any less will not be interested, especially for young fans of technology. Many of the exhibits, always worth a visit inside to steer the helm. For a full review is to provide at least 2 hours.
Large, sprawling museum of Soviet-era aircraft. Plenty to see for the aviation - lover of any nation. Highly recommended.
Very interesting. There is much to see.
The Museum is very interesting, but not all the exhibits in good condition.
A lot of unique technology, huge helicopters, seaplanes, supersonic bombers, and experimental aircraft and more. In some planes and helicopters you can go, others are in a semi disassembled state. There is a separate building in which the exhibited aircraft engines.
It would be great to be able to go inside a larger number of exhibits.
Много уникальной техники, огромные вертолеты, гидросамолеты, сверхзвуковые бомбардировщики, экспериментальные ЛА и другое. В некоторые самолеты и вертолеты можно заходить, другие находятся в полу разобранном состоянии. Есть отдельное здание в котором экспонируются авиационные двигатели.
Было бы здорово иметь возможность заходить внутрь большего числа экспонатов.
Interesting exhibition of aircraft and helicopters. Each with a shield briefly explained in Russian and English. Much more interesting is the personal guide. This is offered to my Knowledge only in Russian, the leaders can be a little bit of German and English. Impressive and just the thing for large and small children, the exhibits are where to go in and sit. I had a lot of fun.
Poor but great museum of Ukrainian and Soviet Union aviation. You can find here some rare aircrafts
If you're a fan of aircrafting this is the best place to satisfy your curiosity.
Nice exposition, IEV spotting place
