  • Guess this is the most comprehensive, informative and a real Museum, dedicated to the exploration of outer space. In the Museum of unparalleled quality and the large number of exhibits, documents and photos, and a fine Guide. It all begins with the trophy of German Jet engine, which was dismantled on internals and stops at modernity and a unique Storm. Many historical facts that I just didn't know a lot about Ciolkovskom, Korolev, Gagarin and his followers. Houses, one of which lived in Queens, and close friend, was preparing for a flight of Gagarin. Visit here-a great success!

  • 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!
