“Great collection of Soviet trains!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

This outdoor museum is a great collection of about 80 pieces of rolling stock, passenger cars, engines, and even cars with artillery and a ballistic missile (see photo)! Cost is 120 Rubles (about $4)/adult. The captions are in English and Russian. The Russians must find it very interesting as well, because we saw a wedding party there. The bride and groom had climbed up on the front of an engine and were having their photo taken.
The site is all on the level, therefore wheelchair accessible. There are toilets, also a few benches but no shelter from sun or rain. No gift shop or food for sale.
The museum is a little hard to find. Take the metro to Baltiskaya station. The museum is 400 yds away behind the old Warsaw (Varshavsky) Railway Station (address is Naberezhnaya Obvodnovo Kanala 118).
