Battle Glory of the Urals museum in Yekaterinburg

Battle Glory of the Urals museum is one of the largest Russian museums of military machinery and vintage cars. It is located in Verkhnyaya Pyshma, a northern suburb of Yekaterinburg. You should include a visit to the museum into a trip to the nearby monastery at the Ganya Pit, place where tsar family was found after murder in 1918 .

Battle Glory of the Urals museum is in front of the main clockhouse of the plant Electromed, included in the holding company UGMK (Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company). The foundation of the future museum was laid down in 2005 when the veterans of the city asked the management of the plant to install the first two guns at the eternal flame and the stele with cranes. This idea went further and there began the formation of an interesting museum of the military machinery of the Soviet Union and the allied countries dating back to the time of the Great Patriotic War, as well as modern weapons.

 For ten years the museum was divided into sections: tanks and self-propelled units, war planes and helicopters, guns, MRLSs, elements of war ships. Each section has dozens of various weapons, from the beginning of the 20 century to our days.

In 2013 there was built an exhibition complex where you can see a collection of vintage cars, as well as motor (passenger) cars and lorries of the war time. Considering the continuous growth of the exposition, in the near future it is planned to build one more exhibition complex.
