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.

The railway museum is located on the way to the Brest fortress. The admission ticket (1€) is quite reasonable. There were many trains at the site. Bad thing is there is no English description so we could only second guess what each train was used...More

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.

We entered the museum half an hour before closing so we had to rush a little.. Nevertheless we enjoyed our rather short visit. There are some impressive trains and the personnel is not very tight so you can climb on the stairs on the trains...More

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

Небольшой интересный музей для тех, кто увлекается историей транспорта. Под открытым небом собрано примерно 20-25 локомотивов. В некоторые можно зайти внутрь. Экскурсовод увлекательно рассказывает про паровозы и отвечает на вопросы. Минус - отсутствие туалета. Interesting small museum for those who likes history of transportation. Outdoor...More

This museum is absolutely fantastic. A huge collection of soviet locomotives and railway cars ranging from Czarist cars and booty from Nazi Germany to newer diesel vehicles from the 1970s. Many of the cabins can be entered and all the locomotives are in very good...More
