Good and interesting museum though guide tends to misrepresent missiles that were located in silos. Hard to reach on your own, best option is to book trip through one of agencies that offer complete package (car, driver, contact with museum guide....).

It is fascinating and bit scary to hear about power, that once dwelled underground. In museum, you are able to meet veterans, that served in missile regiment, but you will need russian or ukrainian to talk to them, only guide knows english.

As a day trip from Kiev (4 hours each way) I did wonder if this would take the enjoyment out of the visit but to be honest didn't detract. Don't go unless you descend down into the Command centre itself and would would say with...More
