The Museum of Baikonur Cosmodrome History is in Baikonur 'town' which was visited before we made out to the actual Space Centre. The exhibits here show the history of Baikonur, dating back to when it just a part of Kazakhstan and then through the war...More

You can only go on a pre-booked, authorised tour and it is expensive but you actually tour the real cosmodrome and can go to a real launch site. Security is high so you are vetted in advance and must take your passport to prove your...More

A very interesting museum. Lots of information. Knowledgable guides. There is a little souvenir shop with poor choice of souvenirs though and a kind of a cafe where tea, coffee, some bakery and chocolate can be bought. Only roubles are accepted.

In a town not necessarily awash with tourist things to do, this was a great hour spent with an English-speaking tour guide. Lots of medals and items to do with the Space Race and launches from the Cosmodrome proper up the road.
