The military test range for tanks was opened in 1931 and the military airbase opened soon afterwards. Town status granted to Kubinka in 2004.[citation needed]

A suburban line links the town to Moscow's Belorussky railway station. The train ride takes approximately 75 minutes. In 2015 a new 10 km train line opened in Kubinka. It goes from Kubinka railway station to Patriot Park, through the station "Museum", located near Kubinka Tank Museum.


Kubinka was the location of the Soviet Union's tank proving grounds, and today is the home of the Kubinka Tank Museum. It is also the location of the MAPO aircraft Maintenance Factory #121 and the Kubinka air base. This base serves as a base for the 237th Centre for Display of Aviation Equipment,[10] which consists of Swifts and Russian Knights, who took place in the aerobatic show during 2010 Moscow Victory Day Parade.


The completion of the theme park Patriot is planned for 2017, a preliminary opening of the so-called "military Disneyland" took place in June 2015 by Vladimir Putin.[11] It is located south of the Minsk highway at the border to the neighbouring settlements Golitsyno and Kalininets in the east and shall complement the local tourist attractions Kubinka Aviation Museum and Kubinka Tank Museum. Tank museum[12] is located near the city. One of its most notable exponents is Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus which is the only one in the world. This museum is also a home to a few unique and experimental armoured vehicles.
