This is an interactive museum, which means that visitors can dive into the clanking and rasping world of rail machines by trying their hand at being an actual train driver: for 5 minutes they get to operate a diesel locomotive simulator! The cost of the attraction is about $3. 

The Russian railway museum also has the Russian Railroads company souvenirs, for those who would like a memento of this unforgettable visit. There are magnets, books, clothing, stationary and other special memorabilia available at the museum store.
