Museum complex is among the Europe’s largest railway museums.
The museum complex is spread over a vast area. It has two buildings — an old locomotive depot building and an eye-catching modern building. The buildings are connected with a suspension bridge to make a single structure.
Museum tours include visiting a collection of rare and legendary steam trains, locomotives, electric locomotives, railcars and other rolling stock.
Historical artifacts rub shoulders with current operating models, interactive installations and temporary exhibition halls, building an unusual and engaging museum space.
Our museum provides a perfect ground for modern-day educational programs, children’s activities, lectures and theme-based video screening.
We hope that our museum will become a venue where adults and children alike will gain a lot of knowledge about the history of railways and rail transport, railway jobs, modern and outdated technologies, and, at the same time, we trust the museum will become an inviting amusement park and a favorite attraction for the whole family.
The museum having an area of 20, 000 sq.m. took 4 exhibition tracks with a total length of over 1.5 km and a track for vintage steam trains.
Locomotive Driver’s Cockpit Simulator allows to go inside the locomotive driver cockpit and explore the technology of train driving by yourself using virtual simulator of real operational conditions.
