Valentina Tereshkova Planetarium, Yaroslavl

Learn more about astronomy and the history of Russian space travel at Valentina Tereshkova Planetarium, dedicated to Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space. Built on the grounds of a former monastery, the planetarium is known for its unusual architecture, featuring a white concrete and glass exterior and an inner dome illuminated by thousands of LED lights in a range of colors, making the building look like a sphere floating in space at night. Climb the observatory tower, which resembles the bell tower of an old Russian cathedral, and attend one of the shows that explain the stars in the sky and the changes that occur each season. One show deals with astronomy in Russian folklore; check the schedule online prior to your visit. The museum models and exhibitions have partial English captions, but tend to be interactive and easily understood despite the limited English information. You can get a meal at the cafe inside the planetarium. Start your trip to Yaroslavl by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • Planned in advance to visit the Planetarium. Session tickets booked by telephone. The film was not a great Museum, but very interesting. Tickets at a very attractive price. In Moscow have not been in the Planetarium, so nothing to compare. Recommend.

  • In the Planetarium I liked. The rate is available, a separate ticket for the session and in the Museum. I went to a session. Material interesnvj, understandable. No claims. Separate Planetarium staff wish and urgent recommendation for parents: BRING CHILDREN to the SESSION ACCORDING to the SPECIFIED AGE! If you specify a 12 + do not bring children under! Im just not interested and they start yelling and koposhitsja, preventing the rest! Age indicate not just so. On the website all the age range specified. Zhad that parents themselves are not bred. Planetarium staff could also follow behind it. On my 12 + session was a girl 6 years, which mom all commented. And it was a nightmare.
