  • I never thought that I could be in that Museum, but I brought back trip, which I certainly was very happy) I visited not only the Museum but also the launchpads, including Gagarin's start. And other places. Of course, if you are planning a trip to Baikonur, then this is a must place to visit. Well if you are just curious to know, what is this place, then I suggest you see my photo, and barely touch the eyes to history.
