Located at Rizhskaya station. Easily accessible from the Metro Line 6 (orange line). This is an outdoor museum with numerous locomotives on display from the Soviet past. A great place to wander around if trains interest you.

One of the best railway museums I have ever visited. The whole history of Soviet railway is in exhibit. No notes in English but worth the visit. It's a must.

The museum is next to Rizhskaya railway station,served by metro orange line #6. Once out from metro, cross the road through underpass to the opposite site where you can spot big decorated station (walk straight through underpass & turn to your right hand exit to go up). The museum entrance is at the end of the main station building as you walk along the station building. The museum has many soviet era locomotives from steam,diesel to electric. One can see the first Moscow-St.Petersburg experimental high speed train as well. We were charged RUB 300 per head as entrance fee. Only disadvantage is all the description about exhibits were only in Russian. But,a must-visit for a railway lover or anyone who likes something different in Moscow.

I was very sceptical about it at first, add I'm not a big fan of trains - or any odd museums, per se - but I found that a surprising amount of love was put into it by the dedicated keepers.

The museum is alongside the Rizhkaya station and if you arrive on metro line 6(orange) you will need to use the subway to cross the very busy road. While the lady taking entrance money didn't speak English she realised that I was English she produce an English guide (all the information along side exhibits is in Russian). There are four lines of exhibits covering steam, diesel, electric and rolling stock. Note that the exhibits are in the open, I had to visit on a day when it rained all day. Before you go you must check which days they are open as they are closed two days a week. I found the museum very interesting albeit the weather is taking it's toll on the paint work. If you have any interest in railways GO.
