The Museum of Cosmonautics is located next to the VDNCh metro station. It is located in the lower part of the Monument to the Conquerors of the Cosmos, a titanium structure 100 m high, at the top of which stands a rocket heading into space. The largest part of the museum's expo­sitions is dedicated to Yuri Gagarin's first flight into space in 1961. Here you will also find the famous dog crew Bělka and Strelka, stuffed with the first live visitors to the orbit.
