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.

What I prefered was to the personal items of Yuri Gagarin and his personal watch he took to space. A "Pobeda watch". but also his medals, and other very personnal items.

First of all the discrimination in prices between Russian and foreign people is bothering me, as discount for students for example only counts for Russian students. I would gladly pay the price however, if the translation to English would be done properly. Most is in...More

We stayed at Arbat so it meant changing trains a couple of times (which is fine as the stations are tourist attractions themselves). Be sure to have a metro map with you and you should find it relatively easy to navigate. We... More

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 :)
