    Strategic Missile Forces Museum
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    The Strategic Missile Forces Museum is made on the base of the disbanded the 309th Regiment, the 46th Division and the 43rd Missile Army Strategic Missile Forces of the USSR. The call sign of the Regiment was "Taimen”. This is a real military base, which has become a museum. There you can see with your own eyes the most powerful missile - the R-36M2 "Governor", nicknamed "Satan" Retired soldiers will teach you about the history of their missile army and of the mighty Soviet nuclear arms. You will pass through the territory of a fighting position, visit nearby silo launcher, where the missiles of the 46th missile Division stood on duty, including famous missiles R-12, that the USSR has placed in Cuba, and they played a certain role in the crisis. You’ll have an opportunity to sit at the control panel and by pressing a combination of keys you may perform the "start" of nuclear missile launch. After launching the missile you’ll hear the heartbreaking sirens because some of the electronic equipment at the fighting position still works. There will also be an opportunity to see the life of the Strategic Missile Forces soldiers who went on duty, they were in complete isolation in the depths of nuclear silos for several days . These and many other ex-combat exposures, await for you in this interesting and informative journey.

Decided to take this tour as I had an interest in Cold War matters. I was collected from my accommodation on time. The guide (Ann Merril) was very friendly & the driver (Sam) was a very confident but safe driver. The tour exceeded my expectations. The small museum was well laid
