Description:
    The museum is accommodated in the stilobate of the monument "To Conquerors of space" which is one of the most famous monument in Moscow. The museum of cosmonautics was solemnly opened on April 10, 1981, in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the first space flight performed by the inhabitant of the Earth - Yu. Gagarin. The idea of creation of the museum belongs to S. Korolev , the Chief Designer of the space - rocket systems. S. Korolev who designed the rockets and spacecraft was aware of the role played by them in the development of the world science and engineering, and he could not ignore the problem of preservation of the scientific - technical heritage. Now the museum is conducting a great reconstruction. A new museum complex in the capital of great space power will reflect the real history of space achievements, based on scientific facts and with the help of modern museum technologies. In special zones it is planned to install interactive exhibits similar to those of Gagarin Cosmonauts Training Center. With the help of such devices our visitors will be able to feel themselves as real cosmonauts on board the spaceship "Soyuz" or International Space station.
