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

I had a pleasant time at the Space Museum in Moscow. It was not very interactive and there were no cafés or food outlets that I could notice there, so I was quite hungry during my visit.

A lot of details about the space exploration !! Including the space suits to food. You will get a clear picture of the daily life of scientists living in outer space. Don't miss the space movie (with English subtitle)

Trip Advisor seems a little confused about the names of the two cosmonautic museums in Moscow (the other being the Museum of Aviation and Cosmonautics). This, the Museum of Cosmonautics (not Astronautics) is located at the foot of the Monument to the Conquerors of Space at Prospekt Mira. The museum is packed with fascinating exhibits about the Soviet Union's space... More

I felt as if I could easily spend the entire day in this place (I can read Russian so I would stop by each artefact to study it - although some have English translations). Human conquest of space is very nicely presented here - and at very affordable prices too (around $4). Certainly a must for any space technology addict.

Huge array of mock ups of satellites, space vehicles etc, plus actual items returned from space; most information (though not all) also in English. Great for children and technically minded adults, and the cinema presentation brought things to life. There's an extra fee for taking photographs, but many exhibits are behind glass ...

We visited this place without planning... We were surprised because of all the shows, displays and artifacts you can find there. Only con is that all the explanations are only in russian, no other language.
