  • Were family on May holidays (for the first time in this place). We liked it and the child (4 years) especially. We spent about two hours here. The child climbed on each locomotive/locomotive and wanted to visit all the cabins of the drivers and carriages, but unfortunately access is organized only in four places (one locomotive and three locomotives), which is the main minus of this museum. All the exhibits are freshly painted, clean and tidy, you can see that the museum is carefully watched. It was very interesting and in the covered part of the museum, where you can read about the history of the railroad, see the current layout of the organization of movement of trains, to visit the buffet with sweets (bought a lot of cheap gingerbread with a railway theme, as a souvenir to himself familiar) and toilet:) Parking is very small, many visitors and places quickly end, so on a fine day or weekend will have to park or near the Brest fortress or near the neighboring houses and pass to the museum meters 200.

  • The museum is very pleasant, neat and has something to see. The only thing that on some exhibits there are no descriptive signs and little that is open for inspection from within. The children are happy, it is worth to stop, especially since it is near the Brest fortress.
