One Of The Best Museums Of Technical Devices In Russia

Posted on November 23, 2011 by

This Technical Museum is a private collection of Vadim Zadorozhny which he’s happy to show to everyone. For free. One can spend in the museum as much time as he wants. So, let’s go inside!

The collection is comparable to a retro car museum…

… and a museum of aviation…

… and a museum of military hardware!

All exhibits of the museum are operational. So is this Horch 930V (1940). Maximum speed: 130 kmh.

The ZIL-111V. One of such ZILs carried Yuri Gagarin on April 14th, 1961.

The Alfa-Romeo 6C 2300 B roadster (1938). Maximum speed: 170 kmh, produced: 10 cars.

The Horch 853A (1938). Maximum speed: 135 kmh, produced: 401 cars.

The BMW Wartburg DA3 (1932). Maximum speed: 75 kmh, produced: 475 cars.

The ZAZ-968М.

Bolides can be found here too.

The ZIL-41053 (1988-1999). Maximum speed: 200 kmh, produced: 22 cars.

Among their owners were Yeltsin and Gorbachev.

A convoy motorcycle.

The Dnepr М-14 (1979). Maximum speed: 150 kmh, produced: 32 vehicles.

The ‘Chaika’ (1959-1981). Maximum speed: 160 kmh, produced: 3179 vehicles.

The Ford ‘T’ (1908-1927). Maximum speed: 65-72 kmh, produced: 15 007 003 vehicles.

In other words, there are a lot of cars here.

A filling column.

The Indian «Big Twin G-model» (1915). Maximum speed: 67 kmh, produced: 20 000 vehicles.

The Izh Jupiter 500.

A military motorcycle, produced by BMW during war-time.

The Indian 741B Scout (1941-1943). Maximum speed: 95 kmh, produced: 35 000 vehicles.

The Harley-Davidson 42 WLA (1942-1945). Maximum speed: 110 kmh, produced: 35 000 vehicles.

A soldier of the German motorized infantry.

Another German soldier.

An English motorcycle.

A railroad model.

Instructions before the flight.

The fighter interceptor Yak-28P.

An ejection seat.

The supersonic Yak-141.

They are not real, of course.

Rocket instructions.

The MiG-15 UTI (1950).

There are plenty of weapons in the museum too.

There is a whole armoury!

The Т-80B (1978).

The antiaircraft missile system 6P25 ‘KUB’.

The BM-21 ‘Grad’.

All the exhibits are, as we’ve already said, in an operating condition. However, all important handles and other things which might be dangerous for visitors, are welded.


Start buttons.

In the museum store.


Apart from the museum store for children, there is another store… for adults, where they can buy a car, like the one in the picture, or repair one, if they have already have an oldtimer.

Location: Arkhangelskoye Village

    Hallo Friend antonio-i
    “A soldier of the German motorized infantry.” – this is not right, this is a Member of “MP” Nazi-Miltary Police “Feldgendarmerie” the German soldiers speek : “Kettenhunde” because these Feldgendarmerie kill the german soldiers of Wehrmacht , they shot down.
    i hope you understand me.

    Wow! Unfortunately, Dr.I and SPAD are only models. I wonder how many of them are circulating around the world – I remember I saw 1:1 maquette of the Dreidecker involved in some kind of advertising campaign in local supermarket.

    Would “how nice” be an understatement…

    I would love to have the opportunity just to look at the cutaway of the ZAZ 968 so that I could compare it to the designs of the Tatra T97, KDF-wagen (AKA VW Kafer), Corvair and NSU Prinz. I have to wonder how similar it’s design was to contemporary cars of a similar design and what adaptations the Soviet engineers made to make it work in local conditions.
