Moscow: Museum of Astronautics

Outside Moscow’s third ring road stands the Museum of Astronautics, with this incredible memorial to the Russian space and cosmonaut program.  The fences are adorned with medallions featuring Sputnik.

And nearby is the artifact from the 1936 Paris international exposition, which actually happened in 1937.

This is a stunning piece of Soviet propaganda!

Even today, the hammer & sickle are everywhere.
