I ran across an interesting article by Anatoly Zak for Popular Mechanics describing the Russian space suit museum. The facility was formally known as Factory 918 and is now named Zvezda.
Most of the out-of-this-world artifacts developed at Zvezda over its six-decade history are now displayed inside the company's recently renovated demo hall. Resembling an airlock of some interplanetary cruiser, this long gallery is lined with glass capsules that contain original spacesuits worn by pioneers of space exploration during their actual missions.
