Strategic Missiles Troops Museum is the unique museum of world level. Nothing of the kind exists neither in Europe nor in the countries of the former USSR.
During the Cold War, 176 nuclear missile launching silos were located at missile bases across Ukraine. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, under the 'Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty' (START) agreement with the USA, they were all demolished ... all except one ... That one remaining complex was turned into the 'Museum of Strategic Missile Troops' (aka the 'Nuclear Missile Museum') which Lonely Planet Ukraine considers "arguably Ukraine's coolest museum". The museum is maintained by ex-missile troops’ officers, who double up as tour guides (but none speak English). The museum comprises the Command Post, and one of the ten missile silos that the base used to control, complete with surface buildings and underground connecting tunnels.
You will be able to visit the one of most top secret objects of the USSR. You will be able even to sit in the Command seat where a simple push of a button could have ended civilization as we know it during the Cold War. It sounds dramatic but you can’t help but think of this kind of stuff when you visit this place.
