  • Very nice aviation museum close to Rīga international airport, rix. A lot of old soviet aviation technical, some Western aviation equipment can be found too. No dislikes. Like everything.  more »
  • We went early afternoon on a Tuesday, it's open supposedly all day (10-4 if I remember correctly), pressed the gate buzzer once, twice, and a third time (by now we're holding it for 30 seconds solid.....  more »

  • 7€ might seem a bit much at first but it's definitely worth it. You can see so many Soviet era aircraft that it's breathtaking. There are even ship mines and missiles on display. The deicing or snow removal trucks together with stairs and a fire truck complete the picture. It's great to spent some 30 to 45 minutes before the flight.
  • Very nice place to visit, if you arrive an extra hour before. You just go right from the departures entrance and follow the fence. There's a bell you have to ring to get attention from Russian caretaker. He understands no other language. To clarify things; if you're like me and want to see the breathtaking 1977 Tupolev Ту-22М3, this can no longer be viewed from up close. Its location is now by the runway. The strategic bomber can be viewed from waiting area at Gate B8 -- or from the window of your flight departing from Riga -- if you have a window seat on the LEFT side during take-off!
