I am from South Africa. I am currently planning a trip to Russia. I am crazy about Russian military aircraft (especially Su-27 and it's derivatives) and my primary objective and reason for the visit is to go to the Central Air Force Museum at Monino near Moscow. I'm not sure in what sub-forum to put my question and so I'll ask here. Hopefully someone living in Russia can help me.
Here's the issue: I've been doing some research on it and on the English Wikipedia page it mentions (without reference/citation) that the museum is closing in July 2016 for "an unspecified time". I have looked at the official site (with Google Translate!) and there's no mention of it there and googling it also doesn't return any meaningful results. I would like for someone to be able to tell me if it is actually closing and if it is when exactly as it will affect my travel plans.
I've got the phone number for the place, but as I can't speak more than four or five words of Russian I can't exactly phone and find out myself .
Many thanks, hope someone can help me!
