The Monument to the Conquerors of Space was erected at Prospekt Mira in Moscow. This outstanding city landmark has been jointly designed by architects Michail Barsh and Andrey Kolchin, and sculptor Andrey Faydish-Krandiyevskiy. September 28th, 1967 Soviet government initiates founding of the Museum of Cosmonautics at the foot of the Monument to the Conquerors of Space to commemorate nation's achievements in space exploration. The Museum of Cosmonautics opens its doors to public on April 10th, 1981, 20th Anniversary of the first manned space flight. Museum exposition gives a retrospect on how Soviet space science evolved starting from first man-made satellites subsequently followed by the first manned space flight, first space walks, Moon exploration programs, Solar system exploration programs and international space research programs. Intricate interior design and unusual exposition altogether created a unique individuality of the Museum. However, new times set new standards. 25 years since its first opening the Museum has been closed down for a massive renovation. Now the Museum shows all the newly accumulated information and latest technologies.

the downstairs exhibition is kind of repetitive with different satellites and lost my attention very soon. It needs better contents to fill the museum

We brought our youngest son there and he was wildly delight! He was especially excited that some exhibits were touchable. You can’t always find it even in our country. So we really liked everything. Cognitive and interesting rest. Recommended!

I would say, yes. I didn't pay much attention as I speak Russian too. I know they have guided tours also in English. Don't miss that attraction :)

Tue, Wed, Fri-Sun: 10 AM — 7 PM. Thu: 10 AM — 9 PM. Museum is closed on Mondays. Don't think you can buy tickets online. Do not go on a weekend. Queues will be hundred meters long, Do it on a week day.
