Cosmonautics Museum

This museum has all the artifacts of space exploration race: from astronauts’ suits to the bits and pieces left from various spacecrafts produced in the Soviet union and beyond. Located slightly outside of the center, this museum comes into stark contrast with its bleak suburban surrounding, but this only increases the appeal. Open daily 11.00 to 19.00 except Monday.
