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.

  • a wonderful Museum, a very large collection. Locomotives just amaze size and technical complexity. In some you can climb, explore the inside. On the same site and the same ticket collection of Soviet machinery and equipment of wheel drive and Caterpillar drive. Is in perfect condition, Fordson tractor-Putilovec, army tracked vehicles. Recommend.

  • Have been here once and we very much enjoyed this event. Of course it's better to go in the summer, otherwise risk not see what due to snow. And so interesting to wander around and see different trains. In some you can even go. The Museum is large enough and there are many exhibits. Recommend.
