Dear Visitors!

We offer you a unique opportunity to spend your 3-day vacation visiting extraordinary places related to space. Perhaps you dreamt of flying to space when you were a child, or you want your guests to have unforgettable impressions from their visit to Moscow. Then our offer is for you! You are welcome to see with your own eyes the Cosmonaut Training Center, the Mission Control Center and the Planetarium, and also to visit the Space Museum where you can learn many interesting things about space exploration by man. If you wish you can communicate with real cosmonauts, perhaps even shake hands with them and get their photographs as a keepsake.

The Cosmonaut Training Center (CTC)

This is the main institution in Russia where cosmonauts prepare for space flights. It is the place where the first cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, was preparing for his historic flight and this center is named after him. Nowadays Russian cosmonauts and astronauts from abroad can train here.

You can choose from two group tours around CTC:

1) Basic program, which includes an interesting excursion around the following halls:

  • The Mir orbital station,

  • The Russian segment of the International Space Station,

  • The Soyuz spaceships.

If you wish you can get inside the Mir orbital station and communicate with a real cosmonaut (up to 30 min).

Duration – 1,5 - 2,5 hours. On weekdays and at the week-end.


1500 rub/person, minimum 24 000 rub/group. At the week-end – double price.

Charged extra are:

Getting inside the orbital station – 15 000 rub/10 persons

Communication with a cosmonaut – 40 000 rub.

Maximum number of visitors – 45 persons.

2) Expanded program – some more interesting activities are added to the basic program:

  • seeing the TsF-7 and the TsF-18 Centrifuges;

  • seeing the VYKHOD-2 simulator which simulates walking into space;

  • seeing vestibular stability simulators, anechoic and altitude chambers.

Complex training facilities are used by cosmonauts to learn how to fly a spaceship. Vestibular stability training helps astronauts to compensate for the undesirable effects of weightlessness and overload on the human body during space flights. To prepare cosmonauts for huge overloads in space special unique centrifuges are used.

The excursion around the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center can be a real treat and a pleasant surprise which can change your ideas about Russian space exploration.

Duration – 2,5 – 3 hours. On weekdays and at the week-end.

Price – 137 500 rub.
