Located in the park with the scale model of the solar system and tucked underneath the giant monument to space exploration, there is this museum. It is an information and collection-dense museum. Among the many exhibitions of the museum, there are sections dedicated to female cosmonauts, the International Space Station, science experiments in space, and all sorts of spaceships in general. If you want to see the first dogs in space, they also have stuffed replicas of Laila and the other dog whose name is escaping me right now. The informational signs are in Russian, but just looking through and not reading anything, you can still see and learn a lot. Tickets are free for those with Russian student identity cards and for schoolchildren.
