About an hour’s train ride north of Moscow, the Air Force Museum at Monino is the finest Russian aviation museum. It was formerly known as the Russian Federation Air Force Museum and, before that, the USSR Air Force Museum
The facility was once an operational air base from 1932-1956. The Museum opened in 1960 at the original airfield location and in the original airfield structures. Once run by the Russian government, it is now an independent facility.
For enthusiasts of military history, the historical legacy preserved here is well worth a visit.
Note: www.RussiantourGuide.com will be happy to do the co ordination for your visit to Monino. We even have pilots of the former “Soviet Air Force” who speak English and will give extra commentary to make your visit more enjoyable.
