The Monument to the Conquerors of Space was erected at Prospekt Mira in Moscow. This outstanding city landmark has been jointly designed by architects Michail Barsh and Andrey Kolchin, and sculptor Andrey Faydish-Krandiyevskiy. September 28th, 1967 Soviet government initiates founding of the Museum of Cosmonautics at the foot of the Monument to the Conquerors of Space to commemorate nation's achievements in space exploration. The Museum of Cosmonautics opens its doors to public on April 10th, 1981, 20th Anniversary of the first manned space flight. Museum exposition gives a retrospect on how Soviet space science evolved starting from first man-made satellites subsequently followed by the first manned space flight, first space walks, Moon exploration programs, Solar system exploration programs and international space research programs. Intricate interior design and unusual exposition altogether created a unique individuality of the Museum. However, new times set new standards. 25 years since its first opening the Museum has been closed down for a massive renovation. Now the Museum shows all the newly accumulated information and latest technologies.

Well laid out museum giving the history of Russian Space exploits from the early days through the Soviet successes up to the modern co-operations in the international space station. Unfortunately its pretty much all in Russian. If you have a good understanding of spaceflight already...More

If you have any interest in space travel, you must visit. A wonderful building with a soaring sculpture outside. Tremendous exhibits in an exhibition space of the highest standard. Descriptions in english as well. Spend a good 2/3 hours here.

I could not go inside as it was closing time but even a nice stroll of the gardens and seeing all those legends like Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova was a great experience.. Also the park has a most interesting placement of the planets

It's best to get a Russian map as all the signs on the Metro are in Russian and we found an English version useless. Ask for a map at the Kiosk

I would say, yes. I didn't pay much attention as I speak Russian too. I know they have guided tours also in English. Don't miss that attraction :)

Tue, Wed, Fri-Sun: 10 AM — 7 PM. Thu: 10 AM — 9 PM. Museum is closed on Mondays. Don't think you can buy tickets online. Do not go on a weekend. Queues will be hundred meters long, Do it on a week day.
