This is a small museum located in the town of Baikonur which is a good compliment to the museum located out on the base. This museum is open to the public and gives a good history of the town, the base, and the military and...More

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.

A comprehensive story of the space adventure. Documents and objects lead you from the victory after the carniage, in the II WW, to the astonishing surprise of the Sputnik's bip-bip and to the first man in the space. Of course it isn't worth the trip...More
