Maybe the best planes museum you will ever be to. Enjoy. You are going to see the most popular USSR passenger planes: IL-86, IL-62, TU-134, the famous first soviet jet TU-104 and many others. All comes in original "Aeroflot" paintings. Some of them are open to enter (for free), check the website. Though have to note, museum is visibly lacking funds for maintenance. Looks like it was left in eighties to this day. Bit it is an advantage for you in some way, you can feel it "untouched".

Open air aviation museum with good collection of aircrafts and helicopters. In some of them it is possible to get inside. Price of ticket for grown-ups 100UAH, children 65UAH. Highly recommended for a visit.

Heaven for any Aviation Gig. Bring 1,5-2hours time. Lots of exhibits and view on operati g runway next door. Some planes you can visit from the inside. Advice for owner: Install wifi for guests,so they can make free posts and Advertisement fot you,so visitor numbers are going up also from foreigners...i had a bit of hard time going back to City Center with Uber (4Ubers cancelled/too outside and too much traffic & plus bad cellphone reception) But nevertheless gorgeous museum Definetly worth visiting and supporting it! Thank you. Service staff friendly (very little English though)

Exciting exposition, vast variety of aircrafts, engines models, missiles and bombs, mostly open-air, so good for Covid times. Descriptions are kind of poor but Wikipedia helps.

Coolest place ever! Awesome! Literally could spend hours here. Great place for photoshoots too. Never seen so many planes in one place and you can climb inside of many of them

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
