Yuri Gagarin memorial House

The Yuri Gagarin memorial complex includes four historic buildings where the world's first cosmonaut’s biography was presented.

The Memorial House, in Klushino village, represents the pre-war period of Yuri Gagarin's family life. You will see typical tools, etc., used in Russian society during the '30s and '40s. Also you will see the dugout where Gagarin's family lived during the hard years of the German invasion.

The house in Gzhatsk was actually moved from Klushino village in 1945. Yuri Gagarin spent his school years in this house. You will see the Lilac bush which was planted by Yuri near the house. The interior of the house is replicated exactly as it was in 1949: with hand-made furniture, the family gramophone, his father's harmonica, his mother’s sewing machine and, of course, icons in the “red” corner. You will see the room where little Yuri grew up, learned and dreamt of the sky.

In 1961, the Soviet Union government granted a new house to Yuri Gagarin’s parents. Yuri visited this house after his flight to the Space. You will be able to see his working place; the old TV set, which his father liked to watch, and his “Volga” car near the house.

There is a House of Space Memorabilia near this house. It was built expressly for guests and visitors to Gagarin’s family house. Today, there is a biographical exhibit “The word about the Son” where Yuri personal belongings such as letters, text-books, training space-suit, gifts and family heirlooms are shown.
