What to expect

Discover the striking facts from the Cold War period by visiting the Strategic Missile Forces Museum in Pervomaisk. Established in the place of the former top-secret military base, this museum offers you a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The museum is located approximately 300 km south of Kyiv and it takes around 3.5 hours drive to get there. The trip starts with hotel pick-up by a professional driver, and you will enjoy a comfortable ride to the destination on a private air-conditioned vehicle.

Once you arrive at the museum a comprehensive guided tour of its grounds will start. It is like traveling back in time to World War II, the explosions in Hiroshima and in Nagasaki, the Cold War, and the Caribbean crisis. You’ll have a chance of meeting former soldiers and officers, who worked at the Missile Base and know everything about nuclear weapons and the consequences of their use.

Your guide will enlighten you about some previously unknown facts of the Caribbean crisis and how close the world was to nuclear war. The museum tour will answer a lot of questions as well as raise an important issue about responsibility for peace and security. You will be impressed with the strong multilevel protection system which was able to defend the base from any kind of intervention. All the exhibits of the museum are original, which makes this experience really authentic.

The highlight of the tour is the unique opportunity to enter the underground command center of the nuclear missile base, located 10 floors underground, and even to press its famous “red button” and hear the sounds of a siren.

Learn more about different types of missiles, examine parts of the missile engines, and see an inactive missile silo. Moreover, discover one of the deadliest weapons of the world: the SS-18 “Satan” missile, which is over 30-meter long.

After a 2-hour museum tour, the return trip to your hotel will start. You will be dropped off at your hotel full of impressions, in a good mood, and with unique photos.
