The Academician Sergey Korolev’s Memorial House
Not far from the Monument to the Conquerors of Space, in one of Ostankinsky side streets, there is a two-storied mansion hidden in the garden behind the green wooden fence.
This house, built in 1959, was presented to S.P. Korolev by the Soviet government for creation and successful launch of the first in the world artificial Earth satellite.
Sergei Korolev lived there for six years (1959–1966). These were the years of hard and intensive work of Korolev and his colleagues.
In this house-museum everything was preserved as it was during Korolev’s lifetime. The museum collection holds approximately 19,000 items: personal belongings of Sergei Korolev, documents, letters, photographs, furniture, household items, fine art items, scientific technical and fiction literature libraries. All exhibits, possessed by museum, were presented by Nina Koroleva, the wife of the chief designer: from the Kiev Polytechnic Institute young student’s neat handwritten notes of the 1920-s to the notebook which tells about the chief designer’s worries and concerns of his last month.
