A great look at Russian railroading history!
Nov 2016 • Couples
Located in an upstairs wing of the main train station, this museum is small, but offers a lot in regards to the history of Russian railroading. On display are several models of historical and current Russian locomotives and rolling stock, railway uniforms, books and other related items. However the most important part of the museum is the person who runs it, Olga, who has a great deal of railroad knowledge from her 33 years working in the field. During our tour, she took us on a short journey through the early history of Russian railroading, to a detailed look at the emergence of rail in the Ulyanovsk area.

Getting to the museum is easy by tram from downtown. Both 4p and 9/11 run regularly to the location. After stepping off of the tram, it's a short walk to the station, and from there you'll find the museum on the upper level.

In addition to the museum itself, about 3 tram stops prior to the train station (if you are coming from downtown) there is a soviet-era steam locomotive on display. It's hard to miss if traveling by tram, and certainly a worth-wile stop.

-Note: The museum is entirely in Russian, just a heads-up for visitors who may not speak it.
