    The Museum, though not large in comparison with Moscow, but very informative. Very well chosen and assembled the exhibit. The Museum has a planetarium. Visit there failed, but plan to.

    The boys will be interesting for rockets, girls-Providence Tsiolkovsky about the structure of everyday life for future space stations. In Moscow such a Museum no.

    The Museum, a mandatory visit for all visitors to the city from small to large! (but so should all know). Even those who are not interested in space-for the overall development of the worth visiting!
