Beautiful landscaped alley
Apr 2021
This alley leads towards the imposing rocket launch monument and the Museum of Cosmonautics beneath it.
The alley has central flower gardens with important dates in Russia's cosmonautic history engraved in bronze-granite star shaped blocks.
In the middle of them is a Solar system monument with all the planets spinning around the sun.

If you are in your mid to late fifties this is like watching black and white TV
Dec 2019
All the names you heard when you were a kid are here. I remember their names from my natural sciences book so this was like meeting the great personalities in the space race. Loved it! The busts had fresh carnationsat the base, apprently it is customary to visit a heroe memorial or tumb on special occacions as your wedding day and leave flowers.

A street to arrive to the Museum of Cosmonautics
Nov 2017 • Friends
Cosmonautics Alley is a big street located in the park,where there is the Museum of Cosmonautics, in the surroundings of Moscow, the main city of Russian Federation. From here you can see very wonderful views of the Monument of Conquerors of Space, one of the best monuments in Moscow. So, I recommend you walk on the alley, when you visit this two places.

The combination of incompatible
May 2018 • Solo
From my point of view, this is one of the most absurd and ridiculous places in Moscow.The basis is an attempt to connect fundamentally incongruous - walking park area with benches and flower beds and a complex of buildings with memorial symbols. All this is one of the extreme manifestations of the Soviet-era gigantomania and pomposity. The 107-meter colossus - a Monument to the conquerors of space-crowns all this cluster of steles, bronze globes, busts of scientists and cosmonauts. Even the mentioned benches are very massive and made of granite! The only thing that somehow brightens up the impression is the Museum of cosmonautics in the stylobate of the main obelisk - rocket-shaped monument. It is quite interesting - there you can see the first spacesuits, various research devices, parts of artificial satellites.

a must for all Space crazys
Jun 2018 • Friends
If you have any interest in space or the space race or the cold war, then this is a good place to visit. It celebrates the Russian space program (s) in a wonderful outdoor way honoring the the technicians and participants.

Very easy to get to - alight at station NDN Kh on line 6.

Walk around for a bit and then you can go to the formal museum - which we could not get to due to time.

Memorial of Space Conquerors
Nov 2017 • Friends
As a big park and museum to memorize the initial programs and pioneers in space conquering of the former Soviet Union, it was built in the outskirts of Moscow, near Ostankino Tower area.

Here you can see the statues of Tsiolkovsky, Korolev and other famous scientists and cosmonauts who contributed to the dawn of space programs.

A place for lovers of space conquering history.

Fascinating museum in dramatic setting
Jun 2017
Don't let the fact that only about a third of the labels in this museum, celebrating the achievements of Russian cosmonauts, are translated into English. The museum is a gorgeous building, worth exploring for the layout alone. Check out the cinema - you won't have seen anything like it. Inside the museum you'll be able to board a scale model of the Mir spacecraft, see space dogs Belka and Strelka, and the spacesuit worn by Michael Collins of the successful Apollo moon mission. Audioguides are available if you want a more in depth guide. The museum is set below the striking National Memorial to the Cosmonauts sculpture, which is worth the journey in itself!

Commemoration of Space Pioneers
Jun 2016 • Couples
Set in a garden location, beneath the soaring monument to the Space Pioneers and behind the Space Museum, this quiet and reflective area remembers the early Space Pioneers and has a series of bronze busts on stone plinths.
Will probably be seen in conjunction with a visit to the Space Museum (just remember to go round the back under the colossal Monument to see this as it is not well signed posted).
