If you want to learn the 'Russian' story of going to space, this museum is a must to visit. It's not huge as museums go but it is very interesting and has some great displays. I learnt a few things too. There are some great stories to come out of Russia and their contributions to and their achievements in the... More

From Sputnik to Gagarin this excellent museum is well worth a visit. Gives in a real insight into cosmonauts, space stations and rockets.

If you go to the national dance show, after that you can walk to the cosmos monument and see cosmonauts as Gagarin and Tereshkova.

There isn't a lot of English with the explanations and I forgot to check if there was an English audio guide. There were many replica models but many were originals which was amazing. I had enough knowledge of their space program to understand most of it, and my wife who had no knowledge quite enjoyed it.

We needed something to fill a rainy afternoon and needed a change from art. This was brilliant for the whole family. Quite a lot of the exhibits have basic English translations. Great little cafe too.

I am not a space nerd but found the museum hugely interesting. Although the staff aren't very friendly and I was told off for asking a question which they found stupid, the exhibition itself has lots of authentic equipment and even stuffed Belka and Strelka! I don't think there are many other places where you can get inside a spaceship... More

Excellent and unique! The museum is fairly close from the metro--you exit the metro and enter the park leading up to the museum and rocket monument, along a square with space achievement plaques and solar system mockups. The entrance is on the other side of the rocket statue. When we went, Lionov, the first man to spacewalk, was giving a... More

I spent a few hours at the Cosmonautics Space Museum in Moscow and it was very worthwhile. The museum is underground and on the surface is a fantastic structure depicting a rocket launch. On the perimeter they have busts of Yuri Gagarin and others. Inside they have a lot of artifacts, models, and pictures. I found the museum to be... More

I grow up looking at the sky and dreaming... this museum talks about those people who made the dream reality. A wonderful experience for those like me who love space exploration and remember the feeling of those time when the heaven was just one step away. However, like all other museum in Moscow, do not expect a lot of explanations... More

Definitely a highlight. The Monument and exterior grounds of the museum are also impressive. The museum features an amazing exhibition.. I toured the museum with someone who has an extensive knowledge of this space program, I was 'wowed'! Would recommend for all ages of people.
