What to expect

Travel to the Strategic Missile Forces Base near Pervomaysk that used to be a secret military object of the Soviet period and learn striking facts about the arms race of the Cold War period.

Start your private day trip to the Strategic Missile Forces Museum in the morning, once you meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel. The Missile Base is located 297 km from Kiev and the road takes approx. 3.5–4 hours. You will learn many interesting facts from your guide along the route.

When you arrive to the museum, you will examine an indoor exposition of the museum dedicated to nuclear forces of the Soviet Union. Then, you will visit an open-air exposition of military equipment on the grounds of the base. You will find out the facts about the multilevel protection system of the base that prevented any interference. Your guide will show you an inactive missile silo and 30-meter long SS-18 “Satan” missile that is the highlight of the whole exposition.

It addition, you have a unique opportunity to descent 11-floors down to the deep underground command center (optional) - a former working place of Soviet officers and a top-secret object. You can even press a famous «red button» and hear the sounds of the sirens. Over 50 years ago, it would have meant a launch of nuclear missile. Luckily, none of the missiles was ever launched that saved our planet from terrible consequences.

After a 2-hour tour in the museum, you will travel back to Kiev. There will be some stops at the gas station, where you may have coffee or snacks. When you arrive in Kiev, your driver will drop you off at your hotel.
