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.

My companion was excited for genuine space articles seeing as Russia is so profound within space discovery movements. However alot was recreated or just information. Still ok & if you have time to spare and are interested then you should go!

It's worth to visit this area because a nearby huge park is around by walk where you can see lots of fascinating structures, fountains, tulip gardens etc..

Easy to get to via the metro, most exhibits had a brief English description. Be prepared to pay extra if you want to take photos.

The monumental statue of a rocket taking off for space is as good as it gets. Although not expensive, the museum inside is full of model exhibits with little or no original items on display.

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 :)

Tue, Wed, Fri-Sun: 10 AM — 7 PM. Thu: 10 AM — 9 PM. Museum is closed on Mondays. Don't think you can buy tickets online. Do not go on a weekend. Queues will be hundred meters long, Do it on a week day.
