The Central Air Force Museum at Monino is the largest aviation museum in Russia and a “must see” for all aviation enthusiasts.

Located 38 km (24 mi) from Moscow, it houses the greatest collection of air-related items. The exhibits are located in the open air, in two hangars and six exhibition halls. The whole exhibition complex covers over 20 ha. The museum was opened in 1960 at the original airfield location. Today, the former airfield structures serve as the museum facilities.

Apart from war machines, cargo, sport, and civilian planes and helicopters, the museum features collections of missiles, bombs, fuses and ammunition, navigation instruments, pieces of radio and communication equipment, rescue equipment, flight insignia, banners and flags, documents, uniform, letters, personal things of pilots, and numerous art exhibits. Many of the aircraft were produced in limited numbers and can only be found in the Monino Aviation Museum. Besides, the museum houses the most complete collection of Soviet and Russian aviation history.

On the Monino Aviation Museum tour, you will see the military aircraft of the early 20th century (for instance “Ilya Muromets”, 1913) and WWII (Po-2, Pe-2, Tu-2, DB-3, SB, IL-10), supersonic jet aircrafts (including Tu-144) and the largest helicopter ever built Mil V-12.

The best part of the Monino Aviation Museum is that most of the exhibits are located outdoors, which means there will no annoying roof or walls of a hangar on the background of your pictures.
