Belarus for railroad lovers – Brest Railway Museum
In Belarus, in the city of Brest, there is a spectacular Railway Museum, which was opened in 2002.
The Brest Railway Museum’s exposition is dedicated to the history and traditions of rail transport in Belarus.
On an area of nearly three hectares, you can see 70 pieces of railway machinery in the open air: locomotives, prewar, wartime and postwar steam locomotives, steam cranes, a collection of passenger cars from 1903 to 1940, sanitary and staff cars, a railroad car with an anti-aircraft gun, a station electric clock from 1953, a railway station bell, and many other rare exhibits.
A steam locomotive made in 1926 and a diesel locomotive that delivered a delegation to the Potsdam Conference are the pride of the museum.
A special feature of the Brest Railway Museum is that most of the exhibits are still in use. This allows them to be used for filming and various thematic excursions.
In the Brest Railway Museum the exhibits can be viewed not only from the outside, you can also see most of the exhibits from the inside.
The museum is very much loved by Brest residents as well as visitors to Brest. It is popular both among adults and children, but especially to visitors from all over the world interested in railway technology and history.
