Museum of Cosmonautics, one of the world's largest museums dedicated to science and engineeringIts history began in 1964 when the Monument to Conquerors of Space appeared on the map of Moscow. The museum tells stories of space explorers and showcases original artefacts. These include the famous Belka and Strelka, descent modules of the Soyuz spacecraft that returned from space, a real control panel of lunar rover Lunokhod and personal belongings of cosmonauts.

A space carrier rocket is one of the remarkable scientific and engineering achievements. During the tour its guests will discover what a rocket is, and when it was invented. How does it fly?
