West Siberian Railway History Museum, Novosibirsk

(4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Since we have family, son of this has gone nowhere and as a consequence also asked railway staff and we decided to take his show not in toy form, he virtually has all types of railway rolling stock, and actually look like rail transport. The child very much, we went to some wagons and watched what he is, he was thrilled. Long wanted to go and that's during the summer decided to escape. A true railwayman. Recommend.

  • In this museum you can see in real life the locomotives, locomotives and trains that ran on the railways since the late nineteenth century.  The collection includes more than 100 copies. All equipment glitters shines and my even now ready to return, leaving the sidings.  Here is a glimpse into the many objects, such as chic coach times of Tsarist Russia, or wagon trains health war.  The collection is rail transport on the West-Siberian railway.

  • Place you want to visit. And don't look at the fact that it is outside the city and still get it. Here trains of all types and kinds: from steam locomotives and various devices for cleaning snow, transportation of cargo and criminals, to relatively modern coaches. A sense of history around. In the top image, the place is practically in the forest, and on how to run manual proteins. Particularly pleased with trains in my husband's Museum, an inveterate traveler, naevshegosja different museums, attractions and countries. Pleased with was as a youngster) climbed all trains and cars, photos and impressions more than in the Novosibirsk. The most vivid memory of the trip. Recommend to everyone, especially children and men of all ages.
