What to Expect
Explore Russia's role in the history of space exploration on this informative museum tour.
One of Moscow's most interesting sites, the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics is situated beneath the graceful monument dedicated "To the Conquerors of Space" - a 100m high titanium sculpture shaped as a rocket taking off.
The museum is packed with over 3,500 exhibits. The fantastic interior is covered with constellations, star clusters and distant universes, while the museum itself exhibits the most important Russian and Soviet achievements in space exploration, from the launch of the first artificial satellite and the first manned space flight, to the first moonwalk.
Sit inside Space Station Mir, together with a Soyuz Spaceship, a vehicle for research on the surface of the moon. See the landing apparatus and cosmonauts' space suits (including Gagarin's), and even sample space food!
