Overview
Tour to the Strategic Missile Forces Museum – the only museum in the world, established on the basis of a real strategic missile forces base. Secret object until 1999. . After the collapse of the USSR, Ukraine inherited 176 intercontinental ballistic missiles. Almost half of them were located on a secret base near the city of Pervomaisk. Each of these missiles could reach the USA and carried a nuclear charge, which was ten times greater than the bombs that had destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. . Until the end of the 1990s, it was impossible to get to the base territory guarded by radiolocation detection system, 3,000 volts of electricity, a minefield and soldiers with machine guns. . Since 2001, things changed greatly as the missile forces base has become a unique museum. Now you can visit it by ordering our tour from Kyiv.

"RED" BUTTON AND UCP Visit the very heart of the strategic missile forces base – its command post, and you will see where the whole nuclear arsenal was commanded from. Former base officers, who now conduct excursions there, will show you the “red” button – the missile launcher console (in fact, it was necessary to simultaneously press two buttons and turn the keys to end the civilisation as we know it). . REAL TANK RIDING (Optional) Once this tank guarded a secret missile base, and today you have a unique opportunity to ride it. At a military training ground next to the Strategic Missile Forces Museum, you can have a ride in the T-62 tank cockpit and feel the mighty power of the 700 hp engine.
