Fully preserved since the Cold War top secret starting position of intercontinental ballistic missiles. The exposition reminds us of the danger that still threatens the world again today (say hello to our northern brother). On the site you’ll see the samples of rocket engines, rocket cars, missile refuelers, mock nuclear warhead, as well as missiles R-12 and RS-20 (SS-18 "Satan"). Ukraine has had about 180 SS-18 family missiles, exactly 176 Soviet ICBMs . A fact is that the tours are carried out by officers who served on this base. You can also go through underground passages stretching for more than 150 meters long and then get down to the underground command post at the – 40 meter point, where there was a "nuclear button", so you’ll have an opportunity to sit at the control panel on the first office chair and by pressing a combination of keys you may perform the "start" of nuclear missiles. That is what makes this area more than just a museum.

The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The tour of the facility shows just how scary the Cold War was and brings to life the nuclear threat we all faced. This is definitely the best tour I’ve been on in Kiev.

I visited the Strategic Forces Museum with an organized tour by the travel agency Capital tours Kiev. It was a disturbing and unforgettable experience. The museum is located a few hours from Kiev. I highly recommend that non-locals or those with weak language skills hire a guide…

Hi Justin! Thanks for the feedback, you are absolutely right that this tour is informative and the museum is very worth a visit. We are looking forward to you at our other tours!
