I first visited the pavilion in about 1995. It was being used as a warehouse and was dirty and shabby. 
I am visiting Moscow now and visited the Pavilion this morning. There are lots of smaller scale models of rockets, spacecraft, spacesuits, etc. The main manned highlights are the following:
Full scale mock-up of Mir and 3 out of 5 modulesVostok 1 spacecraft, though a few places have claimed this.Unnamed Soyuz spacecraftUnmanned Almaz variant with many solar panels. Almaz related TKS spacecraft. This was at the Moscow Memorial museum nearby last year. Mini Buran test craft launched 4 times as Cosmos craft. Engine section of a Buran 
The full scale Buran from Gorky park is now located close to the pavilion. 
There is still much space in the lavishly restored building. So it looks like more additions will occur. 

The combo of Pavillion and memorial museum remind me of the Smithsonian and Udvar-Hazy
Costs 500 rubles to enter the pavilion under $17 currently. Well worth visiting both if you have the time

I was there in April, 1975, when I was a producer for CBS News, preparing for the ASTP flight. After our tour, we got in the bureau car, a Chevy, a fairly rare brand in Moscow then. It struck me as quite ironic that when we exited this pavilion of great Soviet achievement, we were immediately surrounded by a large crowd of Muscovites, who seemed more impressed with how many horsepower the car had than they were with all the spacecraft and rockets in the exhibition.

only take us to the Tsiolkovsky Monument
