West Siberian Railway History Museum, Novosibirsk

4.6
Admire the mighty machines that once regularly crossed the vast expanses of Siberia and served as the only link between remote places at West Siberian Railway History Museum. The open-air museum features over 100 historical locomotives and vehicles. See old steam and electric engines, some of which are fitted with giant snowplows to serve in the harsh Siberian winters. A tour through the authentically restored train cars allows you to see how different social classes traveled--from high-ranking officials to prisoners bound for gulags. The museum also displays a collection of vintage Russian automobiles and light military vehicles. Though almost all the exhibit signs are in Russian, the exhibit is pretty self-explanatory, so don't fret if you don't understand the language.

  • Every year we go there with my family again and again. Every year we find something new and exciting in this Exposition.

  • Open-Air Museum (not surprisingly:))), next to the existing station "Sower" in Academgorodok. Nearby and a public transport stop. Very easy access (by car). If you come for the first time-it is better to pay for the trip, and if this is not the first time, then just the entrance ticket and will gladly deal with children all sorts of cars. Highly recommend to visit!

  • A collection of one enthusiast. Something has been restored, such as the wagon of the pre-revolutionary era. Something on the go. I really liked the locomotives, running wheel, above human growth. Better come on a sunny day. Summer, spring or fall.
