The Museum of Railway equipment
In the heart of Kyiv there is a Museum of Railway equipment at the Central Railway Station. Most of the exhibits are over 100 years old. Few people have heard of it, a little where written about it, and visitors to this interesting place all can be counted on fingers.
To this day most of old steam locomotives, wagons and other railway equipment scattered throughout Ukraine. At best it stands in depots or hangars, but often lives in ponds and dead ends. But with founding of this museum, where locomotives, passenger cars and wagons were restored, there is a small hope that at least part of them will remain.
Threr are mostly freight steam locomotives are presented, a few wagons and the most interesting — luxury passenger cars, with a kitchen, bathroom (full), conference room and much more. All that you can see with your own eyes, because it is allowed to go inside of the wagons and locomotives without problems.
Not all locomotives are available for inspection from the inside - only open cab locomotives, but it kompensiruet open to the "government" cars. Ticket price (18 UAH 13.50 adult and child from 6 years) - an additional plus ))
Overall - very good and interesting.
В целом - очень неплохо и интересно.
Hard to find. You have to go down at the main railway station at track 14 and follow the arrows. Entrance is cheap. However, there are so less trains there, that you should consider if coming here is it worth. The pictures at Google Maps showing everything which is there. Haven't seen so a small "museum" yet.
Positive is, that you can go through waggons. That's was nice.
The museum takes you 15-20 minutes.
A great opportunity to get a closer look of antique equipment, to touch the history of the railway.
Liked it very much.
Все очень понравилось.
A great Museum which few people know. Therefore, there are few people even on weekends. Almost all of the train cars and locomotives can go, to see, to touch. And yet it is very quiet, I don't believe it's a train station. Here is a vintage steam locomotives, old cars, machinery and so on. You will not regret!
Definitely worth a visit. You can see the rolling stock of the past. The kids love it.
Very informative place, is to go!

Вхід платний, відвідував в 2015 році, квиток коштував 18 грн.
very interesting Museum, you can walk through the cars to see and touch.
I advise everyone to visit! Very interesting to see the old trains and convoys. Over each exhibit has a detailed description and history. So that guide is absolutely not needed. And that is not unimportant everywhere you can "climb" and no one will mind!
