Situated a little off the beaten track this museum is still easy enough to get to on the metro. Stop VDNkh. Stepping out from the metro station you can't miss the "soaring rocket" monument that stands outside of the museum. The museum, & the area around, has a Soviet feel, which makes it more interesting. Outside of there are statues of the leading Soviet cosmonauts, but all looking very 60's. The museum itself is well appointed & interesting, & there is enough in English to get a decent understanding of the exhibits. It certainly brought home how tough the conditions were for the early space explorers.
The entrance fee was 250 Roubles, & there is a fee of 200 roubles for taking photos. However, we were there are a Sunday & it was free entrance. Not sure if this is every Sunday, though. Note, the museum is closed on Mondays. Allow at least 2 hours for your visit. There is a large Soviet exhibition park opposite the museum that's also worth at least a short visit, particularly if the weather is good.
