First of all, this museum was officially opened in 2001. Right at the entrance of the building, a genuine Soyuz rocket is found, and for me it was the most iawesome thing of the museum. Apart of this, the museum in general is small, with the exposition hall Samara Cosmic, located on the first floor, as the main exhibit, which includes parts of space crafts (like engines, combustion chambers, photo equipment, and so on), pictures and explanatory graphs & devices. There is a nice small garden in front of the museum.

Small museum under a life-sized rocket. Pity that such important space-flight achievements found such a tiny reflection in the museum. Especially if compared with Washington one. But still an interesting piece of information about Russian space flights

If you find yourself in Samara, make sure to visit this nice museum. First thing you see is an incredible Launch vehicle and it's a real one!!! It is this rocket that is still being produced at the Samara plant, thanks to which the Soyuz ships are sent into space.

Inside you will find plenty of information about how humanity (of course most of attention is paid to USSR) was exploring the space. There are satellite models, imitation of a centrifuge machine, where astronauts are trained. Experienced guides tell amazing stories, facts and biographies of the first astronauts. For lovers of numbers and electronics, there are also dashboards with various data. And for those who want to take something after the visit, there are a lot of souvenirs, including food for astronauts (for example, borscht in a tube)

In the entrance you can find a real rocket waiting for you. Inside you have information about a part of Russian space history with a lot of information.

Visited this museum while in city for the World Cup. The rocket at the front of the building is very imposing and impressive but thats all folks!

There is next to nothing inside, the entry fee of 550 rubles does not justify the content and most of the displays are in Russian (2 satellites, a man in a seat and 2/3 rocket motors are the displays).

Three different exhibits were on when I visited, the first as mentioned above, the second very basic information about the World Cup straight out of wikipedia and the third I think was about 1950s Russian SciFi but as it was all in Russian, I really couldn't tell.

So: Go to the museum to see the rocket on the outside but don't bother venturing inside and wasting precious time and money.

Worth the visit. The museum has a strong Samara focus, making it quite unique, especially for 250 Roubles. Access to the outside is free and you can take lots of fun pictures of the rocket. In the museum we paid for the main exhibit only. The museum provides free wifi and you access the audio tour that way (included in entry ticket). This provides lots of detailed information about all exhibits, which are in one main room. It can be a little crowded but there is a lot to see and you can get up nice and close. Helpful staff will answer your questions. I was impressed with how much I learned and how fun it was.

If you have a plenty time when you are in Samara, then it is interesting to visit. There is nothing astonishing, but perhaps you will find something that is... :o

I won't like missing this hour, had an excellent tour, explanations down to the point, a masterpiece remembering my youth. The objects were showing the real challenges in these days.

This museum is interesting for how distinctive it is. Of course the large rocket displayed outside is the most obvious thing about it, but the contents are also nicely small and interesting. It is all pretty low-tec stuff, and there is not too much to see, but to me this was part of the appeal.

The museum is relatively small, i.e. an hour or so is more than enough, but worth a visit, especially for people interested in technology and those of us old enough to remember the space race.

The museum is easy to find - probably because of the great big rocket outside. It is accessible by tram (no. 20, I think) and there is a metro station not too far away.

We were treated to a tour in English by a young man, maybe a student, who was very knowledgeable. The descriptions next to the exhibits are only in Russian.

By the exit there was a vending machine selling a selection of 'space food'. This solved our problem of souvenirs to bring home for various friends - cosmos borscht anyone?
