The outdoor exhibition is free. It contains a bunch of tanks and stuff. The real gem is inside. You pay 10 MDL to get in. The first few halls cover weapons from stone age and so forth, and then you get to see halls focusing...More

it's just a one-time spot to see, but not to come back. somewhat interesting for boys to really touch the "big things", but this is it. The couple of planes and the few rusty bomb launchers - that's all they've got in here. don't waste...More
