Meet a Russian Cosmonaut with Exeter International

The space race - one of the defining moments of the Cold War. Russia was victorious in being the very first to send a human into space. Russians are, quite rightly, very proud of the achievement.

You can’t miss the Monument to the Conquerors of Space, a titanium triangle supporting a rocket near the main entrance to the All-Russian Exhibition Centre. Erected in 1964, it celebrates Soviet achievements in space.

Underneath the monument, is the Museum of Cosmonautics that includes famous exhibits as the stuffed space dogs, Belka and Strelka, together with the nose-section of the rocket they travelled in.

Enjoy a tour of the museum with a cosmonaut.

Best for small groups, but possible for individuals.
