  • Museum-Pearl Baikonur! In excellent condition! The exposition is updated. Gives a complete picture of the development of space! Museum staff-fans for their cause! Very interesting excursions! There is a gift shop, albeit a very modest one. And that's not Café provides the needs of visitors. Even standing up, have a cup of coffee. Very cozy. Have a good internal bathroom. good external exposition! Impressions are very good (except the Café).

  • A must go if you are a space fan! There‘s one of the original Buran shuttles and Sputniks to see! And the whole history of Russian space travel. Nearby are the launchpads of the Sojuz starts. But you need a special permit to enter and a guided tour, which are not cheap!
