Valentina Tereshkova Planetarium, Yaroslavl

(4.2/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • A great place to visit in winter-Planetarium. Choose the program "black holes". Places booked over the phone. Tickets bought for half an hour before the session. During this time, inspected a small museum. Took pictures in a spacesuit. Studied biography of Tereshkova. Learn about airships. Costs turned out 700 rub. Double room. Recommend.

  • We visited the Planetarium in the new year holidays 2017. A small Planetarium, in anticipation of his session to do nothing. Despite the fact that the last session begins at 8 p.m., the Café at 17.00. has already been closed. We watched "the energy of the universe"-really enjoyed it. Other planetariums have not seen this movie.

  • Yaroslavl-five tourist points of Russia. Could not go to the Planetarium. Inside there is an interesting museum devoted to Tereshkova (took 30 minutes). Watched a movie about the solar system and of course the children dragged into 5 d attraction shuttle (space shuttle simulator). It was a nail in the evening. But people with weak vestibuljarkoj not suitable. Sorry for the Observatory is not always available.
