7 At the Moscow Space Museum

At the Moscow Space Museum

Posted on January 9, 2013 by team

During the first eight days of this new year one could get into many museums of Moscow absolutely for free. It was a wonderful present for the citizens of the city. The museum of cosmonautics was one of those hospitable museums.

The museum has become more interesting and large. Today you need about two hours to see everything here.

The museum has large-scale mock-ups, and life-size copies of the originals. For example, you can see how cosmonauts were sitting in a module.

Did you know that such a locksmith’s set also flew into space?

And this is a set of connectors for work out of the space station. These things probably contain much titanium, gold and other interesting materials…

It’s not so easy to get inside the space suit!

And it’s a docking module.

    Very nice…almost rivals our Space Museum the US Space and Rocket Museum in Huntsville Alabama where the US Space Program started! Very nice museum…would love to see it sometime.

    We have a museum just like this in NASA’s hometown of Huntsville, Alabama. The US Space and Rocket Center houses many of the capsules, rockets, and special space program items of the US. It has a very nice display of Soviet/Russian Fed items as well from current and past missions.
