Private Institution “Museum of Retro Cars VBV” 12+

We are pleased to welcome a new member of the Association of Private and People’s Museums of Russia – Private Institution “Museum of Retro Cars VBV”. The founder of the museum is Vanin Boris Vladimirovich.

They say that the theatre begins with a hanger, and our museum began with the famous 21 Volga (GAZ-21 Volga), manufactured in 1964. Knowing the jubilee’s ardent passion for motor vehicles in all their manifestations, it was presented to the museum’s founder Boris Vanin on his jubilee.   

And at that very moment, when he turned the key in the ignition of the gifted car, his heart was pierced with a desire – to create a museum of Soviet auto industry.

Yes, I’ve been talked out of it. Yes, they gave a thousand and one arguments against it. And still there are those who are skeptical about all this.

But… Who else, if not us.

At first, vintage cars were exhibited in one hall, and mostly friends and acquaintances came to see them. But time passed, the museum grew with exhibits and assistants – enthusiasts of Soviet technology like its founder. An outdoor exhibition appeared, a second hall opened, and tours began to be conducted.

And now charismatic cars and brutal motorbikes are waiting to meet you on the museum grounds. And an exciting collection of vintage items will secretly tell you about the original Soviet gadgets.

Currently, the museum offers:

– tours for organized groups of up to 20 people;

– exclusive individual tours for private visitors (groups of no more than 5 people).

Self-guided visits are possible. Advance booking is required.

It is possible to organise transfer for organized groups on comfortable buses of the museum’s partner company.

The museum collection consists of over 100 units of Soviet technology (cars, trucks, special and motorcycle equipment) and over 100 household items from the Soviet era.

The collection is regularly replenished.

Address of the museum: Lyalovskoye highway 1A, Mendeleevo settlement, Solnechnogorsk, Moscow region, office 20
