Russian model railway museum

If you are in St Petersburg, Russia, there is a lovely model railway museum there. It is straight out of the Soviet era - pictures of Lenin everywhere, ancient babushki who collect your entrance money and so on - but there is lots of good stuff there including some amazing model bridges, lovely cutaway locos and dome-observation cars, lots of failrly incomprehensible stuff about the BAM and a working (ish) layout. And everyone's very friendly and surprised to see you. Anyone else been there?

This is a model railway museum? Not a 1:1 railway museum?

Sounds interesting. Do you have any photos?
Well done - I couldn't find it on-line.
I seem to remember photography was not allowed!

Always glad to be of assistance.
