The graveyard of the landing capsules and descent modules.

1-3. They can be of different types and sizes.
4. Piece of "Progress".
5. Schematic of descent.
6. Various stuff
7. "Vertical'" sounding rocket heads
8. Mock-ups
9. Hard to take pictures - everything is in one big heap
11-13. Unknown piece of equipment
14. Probably Soyuz TMA-32
15. Contrast to a regular museum stand
20. Everything inside is disassembled
22. A pity they all are stored like this, and nobody cares

In short, this guy somehow got into RSC Energia's storage barn and found a lot of used space hardware, including three descent capsules from early Soyuz flights to the ISS (including the ones from Soyuz TM-31, TM-32 and TM-34), at least one Raduga capsule used to deliver small amounts of cargo back to Earth from Mir on Progress flights, and several return capsules of the Vertikal sounding rockets.

Ah, this is exactly the kind of hardware I was thinking about when I was saying the other day that an used Soyuz capsule could make a nice simpit. I don't think they would charge a lot to get rid of them.
