Museum of Cosmonautics History
Kaluga is also famous as the birthplace of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, one of the pioneers of national cosmonautics. That’s why it is no wonder that in 1967 the State Museum of Cosmonautics was built in the city where that great scientist lived and worked for many years.
The museum complex includes a complete historical heritage of the founder of theoretical astronautics and consistently demonstrates the milestones and achievements of Russia in space, from the first satellite to the modern space station.
The pride of the museum is a modern planetarium with spectacular visual effects which became possible by the equipment of the German company Carl Zeiss.
