This is in fact a unique museum with unique collection of Soviet-epoch space exploration artefacts: the first "Sputnik" satellite and capsule, space suits, plants grown in space, mashed potatoes and borshch in tubes, 50-years-old letters, photos and commemorative stamps, and even a tiny piece of moonrock (a gift from American astronauts) - where else can you find such things?
And what's especially cool is the experience of "drifting" in an odd prawn-like chair hanging on a cord a few feet above the floor with some extraterrestrial music playing through your earphones like some sort of cosmic lullaby...
All in all, the museum is definitely worth a visit. It is relatively easy to find in Zhytomyr, since you can spot the tips of rockets standing near the museum entrance yet from several blocks away.
If you are planning to stay in Kyiv, it will take you roughly 2 hours to get here by car.
The entrance fee is ridiculous - UAH 2 (appr. USD 0.25) for adults.
Monday is a day off.
