Summer 2021

York, UK - Railway Museum
Trans-Siberian: The World’s Longest Railway opens at the National Railway Museum (with a smaller display at the Science Museum in London) in summer 2021.

Spanning 5,772 miles across seven time zones, the Trans-Siberian Railway was completed on 5 October 1916 after 25 years of engineering ingenuity, innovation and back-breaking labour. This exhibition will explore the extraordinary engineering challenge behind the railway’s construction, its social and economic impact on Russia and the unique experience of travelling onboard.

It will bring to life the story of one of the world's most celebrated railway journeys, with objects including a famous Fabergé Easter egg, model carriages of a Trans-Siberian Express train and intriguing documents and drawings from the archives. Read more on the Rail Museum Website.

A small display about the Trans-Siberian Railway will be opening at the London Science Museum in support of the major exhibition about this astonishing feat of engineering at the National Railway Museum in York. Read more on the London exhibit on the Science Museum Website.
