VDNKh and Cosmonaut Museum Tour

The tour begins next to the Monument to the Conquerors of Space. This gigantic monument, over 100 metres tall and topped by a rocket was erected in 1964 to pay tribute to the successes of the Soviet space programme. The monolith also serves as the main entrance to the Moscow Museum of Cosmonautics.

On our tour of the museum you will be able to see various types of satellites, capsules, rockets and space shuttles, as well as serving to inform the about the life of astronauts in space. You will see various space suits used by Russian cosmonauts, as well as food specially prepared to be eaten in space. In the interactive areas you can even feel first hand the sensation of space travel through a variety of videos, simulators and touch-sensitive displays.

Having visited the various halls of the permanent exhibition, the Soviet Moscow tour continues by visiting the All-Russia Exhibition Centre (VDNKh), located behind the museum. This exhibition site was constructed under the aegis of the USSR in tribute to state achievements. Going through the Triumphal Arch, in the centre of this open space can be seen the Friendship of the Peoples Fountain, whose fifteen golden statues represent the fifteen republics of the USSR. Following this, you will also visit the exteriors of the enormous pavillions which reflected Soviet military power.

The tour will end at the entrance of the VDNKh exhibition ground.
