One of the best tank museums in Russia

54
Pyshma is a suburb of Yekaterinburg, little known in the world stories. The town is quite nice and clean, but no more. But it is in Pyshma that, without exaggeration, one of the best museums of armored vehicles in Russia and definitely one of the most well-groomed is located. Technique is in perfect condition. There are about one and a half hundred exhibits here, a real connoisseur will easily spend several hours in this museum. Moreover, the entry is absolutely free and free. Coordinates of the museum on Google Maps.



































































Do you know what else is remarkable? The museum was created by the famous Ural oligarch, Andrei Kozitsyn, one of the richest people in Russia, the owner of steamboat newspaper factories, a regular participant in corruption scandals, who appeared at the time in connection with various organized criminal groups. What to say? A typical oligarchic character of post-Soviet bottling, a member of United Russia (and without it in our time), and so on. The picture is gloomy.

But you know what I tell you? Yes, Kozitsyn is a little sympathetic and fits perfectly into the portrait of those with whom Navalny is fighting, but I liked one fact. This man realized that by fraud and membership in the EP, you can’t put yourself in history. He created a magnificent project at his own expense, open to all comers, thereby adding to the hitherto unknown city Pyshma on the map of tourist attractions of a regional scale.

        I made two coverings for myself:
        1. For the first time I hear and see such a wonderful exhibition! (May God grow with new exhibits)
        2. Not all oligarchs buy football clubs.

          there are some, it’s a pity mostly abroad.

          For example
          Palo Alto, California. USA. Jacques Lit [lfild - owner of the largest private collection of tanks in the world. His team is currently working on the rare Panther tank, which was blown up and rested for a long time at the bottom of the river in Poland. In terms of damage and technical complexity, this is the most expensive and difficult project,

                But you can find in the photo the address is.

                  The rest of Saumur, Munster, Latrun are also interesting of course.
                  And such a museum as this one that I would like in an article in each area.

                  I would only be glad to hear (or even better to see) about new models of technology. Previously, I collected magazines "Tekhnika-Molodyozhi" with a historical series of ships, planes, cars, tanks .... Eh .... The barn burned down, where my mother sent all my good when they were drafted into the army. It's a pity, I wanted to leave it for the younger generation. And there have been years since 1965.

      I would love to go to this museum! very interesting exhibitors can be seen ...
      I once assembled models of cars and tanks, stood in the sideboard and on the bookshelves, the oligarch apparently too. but in adulthood I decided not to waste time on trifles and collect originals, not models ...
      Thank you, of course, for such a rich meeting in the public domain ...

      Sometimes you watch on TV how some Americans or Germans show their collections of our military equipment, operating in excellent condition during the Second World War. It becomes a shame that our museums do not have money for the maintenance of such exhibits. And against this background, Kozitsynu for the museum has a great respect.
      Many thanks to the author of the article!

          Kozitsin is now president of the board of directors of the UMMC holding. He invests in sports (including a children's one), created a museum, built an excellent sports complex, provided work for a lot of people (at UMMC enterprises the salary is above average), so in vain he was poured with mud here, this is not true. The 90 generation of any can be trampled into the mud. By the way, at his plant they pour the gold reserve of Russia.

        And in place of Serdyukov, probably Kozitsyn would have looked much more appropriate. And then, as if it were not necessary to re-preserve all this equipment in the event of another Georgian aggression against Russia.

          Nickname She's not on conservation. Though now fill up fuel and go. And the fact that Kozitsin was much more intelligent than Pinocchio no one doubted to create such an empire in the Urals, but he is no worse than Demidov. Only there are no serfs and money does not spare. And our chanterelles took Europe to basketball, and only thanks to him. But in the Defense Ministry should sit a military man with experience, not a commerce.

      Whoever Kozitsin does not cherish, I think there is a reason - we honestly do not become oligarchs, but for a good attitude to our people, to the history of technology - a huge RESPECT and THANKS !!!
      And in vain he refuses to buy enemy equipment - people need to see and know what smart and cunning enemy the Soviet people defeated! And from a technical point of view, it would be interesting - a different vision and a different approach to solving some problems ...

      We all come from childhood, and the oligarch's childhood seems to have been correct. The person wanted to see live what was shown in the films. So he realized his dream.

      The Urals deserve such a museum! The legendary Uralmash is not only the memory of the legendary weapons of the great Victory.
      But also the memory of great people!

      It is hard to imagine how women, old people and children could produce such high-quality and much-needed front-line equipment 24 hours a day.

      It would be great if the museum could create virtual tours of the museum on the Internet.
