  • Very interesting and informative. Visit must each Rosijanin, and even more so the inhabitant of Kaluga! After repair and redevelopment was much cozier. Perfectly executed, so all is well visible and less get tired. Works buffet and Cafe, you can arrange a small snack or eat dasha.

  • A very interesting and rich exhibits of the Museum. But you need to explicitly add the recorded descriptions in audiogidah and it will be unrealistic to cute. Was myself, and I want to be)

  • The Museum stands on a high Bank of the artificial sea Kaluga. Earlier in this ravine flowed rivulet, which was lifted from the sea. The founder of this museum I knew personally. He was my headmaster of the boarding school No. 1 and his name was Yury Konstantinovich Skripkin. The Museum many exhibits dedicated to our space. And not far from the Museum is the House-Museum of K.e. Tsiolkovsky
