Inevitably, before trip to Stupino we visited a few museums in Moscow. One of the most attractive to us, Museum of soviet people achievements, is, actually, a museum complex consisting of large number of individual museums. This complex exhibits peaces of Russian civil, military and space programs. So, one can find, standing next to each other, a Vostok rocket on its launcher, Sukhoi Su-27, Mi-8T and Yak-42. A bit further is Buran, Russian version of a space shuttle.
