Space suits are also highlighted in the exhibition. Visitors will have the opportunity to admire the suits worn by Russian cosmonauts, similar to Yuri Gagarin, the first man to have traveled into space in 1961. Nearby, one can observe the white A7L suits from NASA, used during the Apollo missions in the 1970s.

Reproductions of lunar rovers are scattered throughout the exhibition. These vehicles allowed astronauts to travel on the Moon during the Apollo 15 mission. The exhibition also pays tribute to animals that participated in space exploration, allowing visitors to discover the interior of the Sputnik 2 spacecraft, which carried Laika, the first living being to travel in space, even though her journey was short.
