There's a substantial amount of Chkalov memorabilia, and a display, in the large Monino aircraft museum just outside Moscow.
The piece I like best is they have the memorial plaque carried by the aircraft reading, in Russian and English, "From the Peasants and Workers of the Soviet Union to the Peasants and Workers of the United States of America".
Chkalov is still well regarded in Russia. Moscow, St Petersburg, Ekaterinburg and Nizhny Novgorod all have a Chkalovskaya station on their Metro systems. This is quite common in Russia, for stations to be named after some prominent aspect of public life rather than after the locality (there were loads of Stalin-this-or-that, mostly renamed now !). The Ekaterinburg Metro didn't even first open until the 1990s, so Chkalov was still well-regarded even then. I haven't seen any commemoration of the other two crew members.
