This unique private museum is located in Tula region, in the village of Chernousovo. If you drive on Simferopol highway, it is about 300 km from Moscow.

The museum was founded by Mikhail Krasinets, a former auto mechanic of the USSR national team, in 1994-1995. The collection includes more than 200 cars exhibited in the open air. That’s why most of them, unfortunately, are in a fairly poor condition.
