  • A place filled with history and detailed information about the beginning of the space industry. Unfortunately everything is in Russian but English guides are available based on request.
  • Very good museum on Soviet and modern spaceflight. Amazing artifacts and good documentation. Staff was really outgoing and helpful, but don't speak English. You'll definitely want a Russian speaking guide and you could easily spend 2 hours here. Also, there is a real Buran shuttle outside. They have a small cafe and gift shop too.
