TAG | Ekaterinburg city

The museum, located in the small town of Verkhnaya (Upper) Pyshma (about 1 km north of Yekaterinburg) is one of the most interesting museums of military vehicles, not only in the Urals, but throughout Russia.

Rare examples of armored vehicles of the Second World War in surprisingly good condition, as well as continued expansion of the exposition make the museum a truly unique destination for fans of history and technology, as well as for everyone else too. The entrance is free.
