Valentina Tereshkova Planetarium, Yaroslavl

(4.2/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Valentina Tereshkova Planetarium by using our Yaroslavl travel itinerary planner.

  • How much does not take that Yaroslavsky visited the Planetarium. From the outside the structure of the building to the expositions all enjoyed this place. Space very interesting submission available and informative for both children and adults. Sense of reality is not passed.

  • Was with two children, 7 and 9 years old, walked through the Museum, a small but very interesting from those in which "hands do not touch", would like more modern Exposition see interactive, audio guides, dopreal'nost' ... the stone age, but it can be seen that tried. Went into the Hall to the cinema "Stella Nova" 30 min rather sombre text and pictures. For the money you could make something more modern.
