A surprisingly interesting outdoor museum. There are are train cars and locomotives from the early 1900's to recent years. Part of the museum is a collection of Soviet/Russian autos.

Most of the exhibits you cannot enter. But there are some locomotives, in which you can enter. As well as some passenger cars. The exhibits here go back to the early 1900s. It's worth checking out.

We had a nice little visit looking at the trains. It isn't a big place and for us it was on the way so it was nice but I wouldn't go out of my way and it is not in town.
