Start your private day trip to the Strategic Missile Forces Museum near Pervomaysk early in the morning, once you meet your driver at the lobby of your hotel. The distance from Kiev to the museum is 297 km and the road will take approx. 3.5 – 4 hours.

Once you arrive at the destination, you’ll have a comprehensive 2-hour guided tour of the museum. This place provides a unique experience, showing its visitors top-secret military objects of the Soviet era. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine made a decision to eliminate the existing nuclear weapon and today we have a chance to visit the Strategic Missile Forces Museum and discover previously unknown facts from the Cold War period.

During the first part of the tour, you will discover the indoor exposition of the museum, dedicated to the nuclear forces of USSR, history of the battles during the World War II and the consequences of the nuclear explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The tour continues as you explore the open-air exposition of military equipment and the grounds of the missile base. Your guide will explain you the multilevel protection system of the base that prevented any kind of intervention to its territory. Moreover, you will see the parts of the missile engines, examples of the missiles, and now inactive missile silo. The highlight of the exposition is the SS-18 “Satan” missile that is over 30-meter long.

After that, you have a unique possibility to descent down 11-floor deep command center and imagine how the soviet officers used to work there. Moreover, you can even press the famous “button” and hear the signal of siren, which half a century ago would mean the launch of the nuclear missile. Fortunately, none of the missiles was ever launched there for real that prevented the humankind from terrible consequences.

A visit of Strategic Missile Forces Museum is once-in-a-lifetime experience you will never forget. It reveals many secrets and at the same time provokes many questions, but it surely doesn’t leave you indifferent.

After a 2-hour tour of the museum, a return trip to Kiev will start, and your driver will drop you off at your hotel upon arrival.
