  • Central Museum of railway transport. One of the oldest scientific and technical museums in the world-was formed on the orders of Alexander 1 in 1809 one of the divisions of the Corps of engineers of communications ... then the railroads that wasn't even to speak of those engineers were engaged in the construction of roads and bridges. The modern building was constructed specially for the Museum next to the Yusupov Garden on Moscow Street. and opened in December 1902. A year later he even Nikolay 2 visited. Now it is relatively small (only 8 rooms), a few old-fashioned (nothing new over the past couple of decades there almost does not appear)-but very cozy and interesting Museum. Undergo regular tours (and I was lucky enough to get one of them). and it is worth a walk through the Museum with a guide-Bo tell really much interesting, though aunt guide identity quite archaic style and format of delivering material not especially modern, on the other hand it is very much in the theme and subject of the exposition itself not too progressive. And the main thing that the tour guide include all sorts of existing models that at independent inspection does not work. This and marshalling yard-works on all its laws-only in miniature, and the layout of the route of electric trains with all these systems manage semaphores and arrows and all sorts of other cool existing devices. As a child I would soul sold for so many toys in one place. Here grows up with him-Makso learn the intricacies of railway in the world. still very liked there small but incredibly realistic dioramas on the main stairs. ... and a bunch of any devices for adjustment and the automation movement on Rails shooter-the true purpose of which remains a mystery.

  • January 3, 2017 no reason to sit at home, especially the Museum promised child 8 years long and the railway is his passion. Excursion in the bottom going every hour. You can walk without excursions of course, but the exhibits you won't turn on and won't be so interesting. We had a wonderful tour guide her children listened and obeyed. In General happy with both adults and children.

  • A very interesting Museum, all the moves and moves. The excursion is obligatory, not heavy but informative.
