We would very much like our domestic research school to have continuity, and now it is in the Moscow Planetarium,” emphasized the Minister of the Government of Moscow, Head of the Department of Culture in Moscow. Alexander Vladimirovich Kibovsky.

“The exhibition is organized at the most modern level, because it is difficult to surprise our children now, but here they will undoubtedly be surprised.
