Space Exploration is one of our national prides rooted in the USSR times. The museum is a must-see if you want to learn more about international space-race that changed the world in mid-20th century. My tour is based on a lot of interested facts that were only recently revealed.
ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Museum of Cosmonautics, Moscow, Central RussiaOn the tour I will tell you the story of space flights, some of the facts that only recently were revealed to public. Space era is short but full of outstanding episodes, from October 1957 when the first artificial satellite "SPUTNIK" was launched and April 1961 when Yuri Gagarin flew into space up to present-day however the orbital life and work of astronauts at ISS (International Space Station) seems routine. You will see models of spacecrafts, rockets and Moon buggies, real space suites and descend modules. You will learn about day-to-day life on the orbit and be able to go inside a space station module, try to work with space gloves on and touch a falling star (do not forget to make a wish). Duration: 2 hoursStop At: The Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy (VDNKh), Moscow, Central RussiaWe will walk to the unique VDNKh park (10 minutes walk from the museum) and observe a most remarkable and concentrated cluster of Soviet Architecture. We finish in the VDNKh park where there are a lot of eating places or I will bring you back to the hotel or city down-town.Duration: 45 minutes
