This museum has a large number of unique railway cars. Definitely worth a visit. There is a small indoor section too. Note that the entrance is on the south side.

If you're find of Soviet machinery/railway stuff, this museum is for you. You can climb onboard some trains and appreciate their magnificence. In case it is too cold, there is a small museum indoors, where you can see some memorabilia.

A selection of very impressive locomotives and carriages from the Soviet era, but unless you understand Russian or Belarusian you’ll miss out on a lot of information. Still, I enjoyed it. A good place to bring kids.

Nice to stroll around the old locomotives and wagons. There are machines from decades there and a small covered museum, with the history of railway station in Belorussian. Problem is no English displays, if you want more information, but it´s fine just have a look.

Even if you aren't a train geek this place is definitely worth the visit, bcs of all the historical soviet era trains you see there, and special trains like "snow skid train". The huge advantage is that you can go inside and see the interior...More
