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.

Super interesting and even though most of the exhibits are replicas, I found it very informative as some of theme are 1:1 sized models. But this is important if you do not speak Russian: most of the exhibits have signs and information only in Russian....More

This is museum full of artifacts and recreations plus lots of literature relating to Soviet space exploration. For anyone at all interested in space exploration and the sending of man into space come along and see capsules, space suites, artwork and be amazed.

If you are interested in space exploration and our history to date, this is a must see when you travel to Moscow. It is obviously primarily aimed at the Russian space program but is does also cover parts of the US space programme and joints...More

If you're looking for some barmy Soviet inventions, this is the great museum. It's filled with models and replicas of all the insane things they have sent into space. Although there was supposedly a full scale model of Space Shuttle Buran, plus a Buran simulator,...More

If you are a space enthusiast you should visit this museum. There you can see the first satelite "Sputnik" and Gagarin´s roquet.

A very good place to see the history of space, but not so easy to organise a professional visit because of a very high accent on the children groups. Dear administration, may be it is possible to split the hours of visit for young visitors...More

It is an interesting place and well worth the small fee to get in. History through the space race and then a united effort is shown in the lay out of the musuem

It's best to get a Russian map as all the signs on the Metro are in Russian and we found an English version useless. Ask for a map at the Kiosk

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 :)
