I would have never expected i could have looked into a Soyuz capsule... and yet i did it in this museum. You will see memorabilia of the space race, the only negative side is that english translations are really rare and only available for the most important of the exibitions. Probably going with a guide would have been a better... More

This is a great museum, and a great chance to show your kids all the great achievements of the Soviet People in space exploration. You will get to see reproductions of the Earth's first satellites and actual cosmonautic gear and instruments. If you do not speak Russian, though, I recommend hiring a guide or booking a tour to make your... More

We stumbled upon this by accident but after paying 450 rubles to get in (this included use of cameras) it was amazing with plenty of English translations. Again it's very easy to get to as it's right next to a metro station and just before the Russian exhibition park entrance.

I stumbled upon this vast and impressive memorial by VDNKh metro on my way to the Ostankino communications tower. Underneath is the cosmonautics museum. Much is in English. There are many life-size mock ups of space vehicles, the manned examples giving you a terrifyingly real idea of the braveness of these adventurers (& animals), especially in an analogue era. Many...

Most things are only in Russian - including few movies in the cinema that is a part of exhibition. A lot of fun !

This is one of those places that you hear much about but don't get to see unless you make a decision to go - and you certainly should! From the imposing and grandiose obelisk to cosmonautics, to the unique and enchanting contents of the museum itself. It would be foolish to assume that this would be a 'boys' day out... More

Really loved this museum as it relates to something that has happened in my generation. I remember Gagarin being the first man in space and seeing him on British TV withKkrushchev at Lenin Tomb so I got a lot of pleasure from seeing some of his personal possessions and photos from the time. Would have preferred more info in English... More

If You have any interest in space exploration and technology, this is the place to visit. The museum is easy to reach by metro. Just take a ride to VDNh station and the museum is in fromt of You (on the platform, look for the overhead signs directing to VDNh [the exhibition center/park]). Entrance was (in 2014) 200 rbl and...
