Being a massive fan of aviation and engineering I was really looking forward to visiting this museum. My overall impression was that I wasn't quite as impressed as I thought I would be. Alot of replicas rather than the real thing. Having said that they do have the actual capsule and suite that Gagarin went up in. Lots of other... More

I was not too sure what to expect with this place. The entry was only 200 rubel which actually nearly put me off as it seemed a bit too cheap to be a really good attraction!! However I was wrong its absolutely brilliant. Not a huge amount marked up in English but they did have some which was nice. Lots... More

I went there with low expectations, I mostly entered because it was so cheap, 200 rubel. I was very impressed, there's a cinema showing a movie about life on a space station, you get to walk inside a replica of the old russian space station MIR, and you can try to work in the same gloves as they have in...

the rocket monument is very impressive, incuding the relief at its base sides. The astronauts lane is impressive with Valentina Tereshkova in a goof place. The museum tells the story of the Soviet space missions, including finally the cooperation with other nations. One of our group had knowledge in that field and explained us a lot. Once again - you...

If you are into space tech etc this is fab. A little disappointed that there was not more translation of documents etc but what there was was well done. Highlights were the statue of Yuri Gagarin, Michael Collins actual spacesuit, and don't miss the documentary in the cinema about the International Space-station (subtitled in English). Had there been more translations... More

A very educational museum. Compared to Houston this is my favorite. It tells and shows you the history of Russian space history in a very educational way and I enjoy go there again and again

Very interesting museum offering an unusual point of view of the history. It's a real pity that a lot of old soviet "guardians" are watching you all time making sure you are not taking pictures of the Sputnik or other things, like it was the latest and classified space technology. They should not be there, because they can destroy your... More

The space museum in Moscow was an pleasant experience, seeing life size models of space ships, real items, Soyuz, space suits etc. was a great experience. It was bringing memories of Sputnik , Yuri Gagarin and the greatness of Soviet space power those days. The display description should also be in English.

There's really nothing in the world that compares to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C., and one must keep that in mind when visiting other such locations. This museum is noteworthy for the presence of some real artifacts, namely a pair of space dogs, the TM-7 Soyuz capsule, and some space-worn flightsuits among other things. It's true... More
