Space Museum

The origin and growth of Indian Space programme is closely knitted with an old fishermen's hamlet in Thumba, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. Five km down west, in the verdant settings of the Thumba beach, the space museum, a permanent exhibition set inside the erstwhile St.Mary Magdalene Church unravels the golden successes of Indian space programme. With real size models and scaled down models of launch vehicles and satellites, one gets to feel proud of our national achievements in space. The original Space Recovery Experiment (SRE) capsule recovered from space after 12 days in orbit and the breath-taking movie giving the feel of being near the real launch pad, makes a visit to space museum an unforgettable experience.
