Strategic Missile Forces Museum Tour


After the collapse of the USSR, Ukraine inherited 176 intercontinental ballistic missiles. Almost half of them were located on a secret base near the city of Pervomaisk. Each of these missiles could reach the USA and carried a nuclear charge, which was ten times greater than the bombs that had destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Until the end of the 1990s, it was impossible to get to the base territory guarded by radiolocation detection system, 3,000 volts of electricity, a minefield and soldiers with machine guns.

Since 2001, things changed greatly as the missile forces base has become a unique museum. Now you can visit it by ordering our tour from Kyiv.

Strategic Missile Forces Museum Tour Highlights:
A real missile forces base

Strategic Missile Forces Museum


  • A silo-based missile launcher – the only one left in Ukraine;
  • 40 meters deep underground unified command post (UCP). It’s defensive constructions are able to withstand a direct hit by a nuclear warhead;
  • 3 meters deep underground passages connecting the base units.
Ballistic missiles and their components

Strategic Missile Forces Museum


  • SS-18 “Satan”. Weight 211 tons, length 34 meters, operating range 15,000 km.;
  • SS-4 «Sandal» (Р-12) – operating range up to 2,000 km. The deployment of these missiles in Cuba in 1962 provoked the Caribbean crisis.
  • Various combat missile parts and components.
"Red" button and UCP

Strategic Missile Forces Museum


Visit the very heart of the strategic missile forces base – its command post, and you will see where the whole nuclear arsenal was commanded from. Former base officers, who now conduct excursions there, will show you the “red” button – the missile launcher console (in fact, it was necessary to simultaneously press two buttons and turn the keys to end the civilisation as we know it).

Real tank riding

Strategic Missile Forces Museum


Once this tank guarded a secret missile base, and today you have a unique opportunity to ride it.

At a military training ground next to the Strategic Missile Forces Museum, you can have a ride in the T-62 tank cockpit and feel the mighty power of the 700 hp engine.

We did the beer tour in Kiev. Five beers in five different bars for two of us and our guide. That was a great chance to hang out with some locals, get to know the history and city a bit more, all while enjoying some of the unique local beers you can only find in Kiev. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company and we had a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend taking a tour with Wonders & Holidays. I learned so much about Ukrainian history that I wouldn't have on my own and the tour guides feel like friends (rather than just guides). I went on the Kiev in 180 minutes sightseeing tour with Igor and it was such a great experience. He was an excellent guide not only did he explain the history so well, but also answered any related or unrelated questions about Kiev and Ukraine. Both Igor and our driver Gestutas were so personable, accommodating, kind and professional - I hope I get the chance to go back again to take another tour with them.
