Read some reviews that said it's OK, but just OK. The experience was very different. Firstly, it's super easy to get to, right by VDNKh station. Secondly, there are a number of original pieces that are amazing to see in person, from sputnik-1 to the Soyuz descent module and everything in between. This really is a must see if you're in Moscow - I would recommend the audio guide to get a full picture of what you're seeing (very cheap and very informative).
Great place for a visit on a cold day:) if you just want to look at rockets and stuff it will take you half an hour to walk through the exhibits, but if you want to learn about the Soviet space program and the people behind it and its ideas, you can be there all day;) The ticket thing is a bit tricky but some of the staff is very helpful ...
