Memories of Days Gone By

Memories of Days Gone By

St. Petersburg’s Central Railroad Museum is the oldest railroad museum in the world. It was established in 1809, 28 years before the first Russian train and is one of the over 130 museums that draw visitors to St. Petersburg region from all over the world.

Located in St Petersburg’s historic center, and immediately adjacent to the Yusupov Palace and Gardens, the small (15,000 square feet) museum bursts at the seams with over 50,000 exhibits, only a few of which can be on display in its eleven halls at any one time.
