With your guide, you will not only understand the reasons of the Soviet domination of space, but you will also discover the role and current involvement of the Russian Federation in space. You will visit a life-size model of the MIR Space Station, and discover the unique characteristics of each of the spacecrafts, including the Soyuz vessels.
In addition, your guide will tell you stories about the Soviet space conquest. Do you know who was given one of the puppies of Strelka, the second canine-cosmonaut and hero of the USSR? The Museum of Cosmonautics is a must-visit destination for space and space-conquest enthusiasts.
At the exit of the museum, you will visit the VDNKh park, one of the most beautiful parks in the city, a real propaganda tool under the USSR. You will see many statues from the Soviet era, and will feel like you are making a real leap into the past.
