This awesome place is located inside Russian agency which was developing the infamous Russian jets with “LA” index – La-5, La-7, La-250 etc and some winged missiles ZUR-205, ZUR-217 etc. It is a former top secret Soviet facility now you can, with some effort, enter and see over twenty five real Soviet space vehicles, including the Lunokhod – the Soviet moon rover and also other vehicles that traveled to moon and back: Luna-16, Luna-20, Luna-24 etc.  Also the Venera ship  which went to Venus! You can also see Gagarin’s landing module! So thanks to a Russian blogger Denis we can see them all now!

    Just to be clear, none of these probes went to a ‘planet and back’, except for the moon/rock sample return of the Luna missions.
