Vadim Zadorozhny Technical Museum, Krasnogorsky District, Moscow

Russia's largest private museum, this is a huge collection of cars, motorbikes, tanks, guns, and aircraft, restored to a superb standard, and with great facilities. The founder, Vadim Zadorozhny, bought the collection of the Yakovlev museum, so there are many Yaks here, including several unique examples.
