This museum is very easy to find. The monument epitomizing the Cosmic Samara, created from the real launch vehicle Soyuz, is located on prospect Lenina. Earlier the rocket was used in spaceport Plesetsk as simulator for cosmonauts. But nevertheless the engines, the hull and all the equipment are real. The height of the monument is 68 meters, and the weight is 73 tons. Here you will also find museum and exposition complex, but it is not really worth visiting. The most interesting thing here is the launch vehicle itself.
