Museum of military and automotive equipment in Pyshma


I went to the museum in Verkhnyaya Pyshma again. To say that I was surprised is to say nothing. The museum was big, now it is - just huge. The pavilions of vehicles and "Parade crew" were added, where there is a vehicle participating in the parades on May 9 in Pyshma.

By the way, today, shortly before my arrival, either BT-7 or T-60 was warmed up there, so the aroma in the room was unforgettable. And the blue haze had not yet cleared when I arrived.

In addition to these pavilions, a pavilion with Wings of Victory aircraft was added. And also in the process of filling now, in addition, there are several glass pavilions on the street, where access is still closed with a red rope.

I photographed about 300 pictures, but then the camera sat down, and in the pavilion "Parade crew" I was already with the camera removed. I remembered the opportunity to take pictures with my phone, already standing at a bus stop waiting for a bus to the city.

By the way, Kozitsyn shouted loudly that there would never be fascist technology in this museum. Today I met there a Bf.109G, an FW-190A-6, an MG-151/20 cannon, and some of the "armor".

In general, I concluded that it was necessary to go there for a couple of days. After all, in addition to the pavilions, the outdoor exposition has grown that way by three times.

And now a few photos:

This is how the monument looks now. It was moved and enlarged.

And this is how the entrance looks now.

Here is a lineup of different T-34s ending with T-44Ms:

An ACS peeps out of the lawn bushes right at the entrance:

Then I will try to lay out the "Lend-Lease quarter" and other foreign language:

On the tail - the Germans:

Well, from the "bright future":

Behind the fence - this is, in my opinion, An-8. In any case, there is a tail gun mount. But I couldn't really take a picture - the crack in the fence is narrow.

Here, by the way, is a photo of the "terribly protective" rope (the "Angara" and the pavilions are hidden behind it):

That's all for now.

I strongly recommend dropping by to see it in person, taking with you 1200 rubles (4 pavilions at 300 rubles per entrance), full pockets of batteries and memory cards for cameras and camcorders. It will take a lot of strength - you will have to walk a lot. Well, a good mood will not hurt.

    A very representative collection, I just can't believe it! The author is a real fellow! This is not important for you about "access to archives only for real historians."

      I thought at first to photograph only "new", but there are so many new things that I just did not even begin to understand what I have already laid out and what is not.

    Good morning and a huge thank you.
    Wonderful photos, but of course it's better to go there yourself. I heard a lot of good things about the museum, unfortunately I was not there.
    Thanks to the organizers, we must keep the memory of the war, about what the Soviet people created for victory and defense.

      It takes a long time to sign a photo laughing And so the reportage was sent for moderation on the 10th. And here is only a small part of the exposition. You really need to walk there for a couple of days.

    Was only in the open area. The pavilions are closed on Monday and Tuesday. There are more equipment on the site than in the Artillery Museum in St. Petersburg! I want to go there again, you have to walk there for at least 2 days! This museum is PRIVATE! Entrance for a nominal fee! There would be more such owners of factories who do such a benefit for the people at their own expense!

      UMMC is not a poor office. In addition, every renovation of the museum reduces the salary of the staff. In any case, the guys from the UMMC told me so.

        why are their salaries cut? After all, this museum is better than the one that Shoigu stole from everyone in the country and stuck it in the capital !!!

          Because the restoration of technology and the manufacture of models is not cheap.

        This is not true, no one has cut anything. The guys from the factory can say nothing like that.

          Do you have accurate data? In terms of premiums, payments?
          1. Ksanatos
            Ksanatos 19 June 2021 08: 43
            Because I worked for UEM from the time when the museum occupied three times less than its current territories, and until last year. The expansion of the museum did not affect salaries. Every year salary indexation, 13 salary and bonus per day of metallurgists in the amount of 50% to 100% of the average salary.

    Perfectly! I got a feeling of pride that there are people in our penates who are investing money (... and very big) in the purchase of remnants of armored and aircraft equipment, their restoration, equipment for a museum of military equipment, and so on. Not everything is lost drinks

    And then we only hear about foreign places where military technicians are valued and collected.
