We really enjoyed the interactive exposition of many retro cars, also there was the whole history shown from the invention of wheel to nowadays cars. What I found most catching was the part... More

After hearing and reading about that place from so many sources decided to visit finally and it was just great place to be! Really worth of investing 2...3 hours to this place, specially when you have personal experience from soviet times. The museum has been created with a smile and everything looks very fresh and finished. Liked it a lot!

A hidden gem on the outskirts of town but absolutely worth the trip, particularly on a rainy day ! Excellent displays and some very impressive vehicles on display. Lots of interactive stuff to occupy kids who may not be so interested in cars. Highly recommended !!
