  • The National Museum of Avionics Olega Antonova in Kiev is close to Zhuliany International Airport. If you want to get to it from the city, I certainly recommend you to take a taxi that will make you out of the centre up to 10 euros. It is also possible to reach the museum from the airport where the joints go. However, it is a 20-minute walk from the airport, mostly in addition to the city's less frequented road. The price of the entry is 100 hryvnia (including entry to the aircraft), approx. 4 euros. I note that there is no card to pay (nearest ATM at the airport). Fortunately, the lady behind the window is willing and can also issue from euros or dollars. Before the entrance gate at first glance, the museum has a huge impression. After entry, the individual military technique is divided by type and time period in succession. If you do not try more detail every airplane, helicopter, fighter, etc. The tour can be managed within 2 hours. Each exhibit includes a table describing in Ukrainian and fortunately also in English. This museum is suitable for both layages, so fanatic enthusiasts of avionics. It is certainly worth a visit when you are already entering Kiev.

  • There were a lot of civilian aircraft and military aircraft (airplanes & helicopters), and it was impressive. The premises were not dangerous, so the children were running around. I'll put it in some cabins. There were some things that could be sat in the cockpit and exhibited. I forgot which aircraft it was, but only one was very bad and there was a moldy smell that I could have a throat, so it came out immediately. It is right next to Giuliani Airport and you can also see the departure and departure of the plane. There is also a simple coffee shop and souvenir shops on site. It was more fun than I expected.

  • One of the best places I've been in my lifetime, a massive range of aviation aircraft from early 20th century and modern day. You can go inside some of the aircraft including the cockpit of some. And it is also a great place for kids to go and have a look and experience it. Only issue I had was the staff who spoke little English but that is expected. A good day out should take around 2-3 hours.
  • Really impressive collection of planes, helicopters and even aircraft engines! Some planes and helicopters can be seen from the inside! They even have some flight simulators you can try on site! And if you finished the long tour (give yourself 1.5 to 2 hrs), you can always do some real life plane watching, as the airport is literally over the fence! All inclusive price: 100 UAH
