Russian Technical Museums

Being a mechanic by way of thinking and education, I have long and truly loved technical museums. I have always tried to visit them whenever possible, but this has rarely been possible. Now I have much more time for it.

The trial balloon in the form of a series of reports about the museum in Verkhnyaya Pyshma was successful. Voting on further publications received, albeit a small, but positive assessment. So I will continue.

I have been publishing reports about museums in two languages on my website www.fromSalekhard.ru for quite a long time, and in order to avoid unnecessary work, I will not duplicate them here, but will simply post links and announcements of new publications.

For ease of use, I place two indexes: thematic and geographical, which I will update.

Happy viewing.

Vyacheslav Sheyanov’s Motor World

Near Samara, in a very inconvenient place in terms of accessibility (two hours by minibus from the railway station or more than $ 10 by taxi), in the village with the romantic name of Petra Dubrava, there is a wonderful museum “Vyacheslav Sheyanov’s Motor World”

Motoword Vyacheslav Sheyanov

Thanks, great list. A pity the current situation makes very difficult to visit them :frowning:

I agree. But, on the other hand, there are a lot of people in adulthood here. And if they still haven’t got to these museums or just to Russia, then they would never have done it. For any situation. Just like I did not plan to visit every country in the world or even Europe. But in this section, I enjoy watching other people’s reports about museums with great pleasure.

Tram Museum (Nizhny Novgorod)

On the territory of the tram depot No. 1 of Nizhny Novgorod there is a small Electric Transport Museum or, as it is also simply called, the Tram Museum. It was founded in 1971 in connection with the 75th anniversary of the Nizhny Novgorod tram.

Volga Region Museum of Railway Engineering. 2022 (Samara)

A little more than three years have passed and I again ended up in Samara. Of course, I found time to visit the Volga Region Museum of Railway Engineering, the first visit to which I have already told. And there he complained about the shortcomings of winter visits to open areas. I fully confirm the extreme obligation of summer visits to such museums.

Somehow I immediately ran to the steam, heat and electric locomotives, bypassing everything that was on the way. But there is else something to see.
