The museum was opened in 1975 in a new station building, which had been built in the form of anti-tank teeth. Near the station locomotive Эш-4375 of the Komsomol youth brigade is installed. The brigade had worked on the Road of Life. Exhibition features photos, documents and original artifacts that tell about Ladoga railway junction, lake and river ports during the Great Patriotic War and about the builders of the Road of Life.
Previously almost always desolate small railway station Ladozhskoye Ozero during the war turned into a developed railway junction with five stations and adjacent large lake and river port. From here in 1941-1943 was organized the management of the railway traffic in besieged Leningrad.
Among the exhibits there is a base map of Leningrad ways of communication with the mainland in 1941-1944. Visitors can see different types of routes: ice and water tracks, ramps, ferries routes, rail tracks, as well as places where gasoline pipe and electric power, telegraph and telephone cables were laid on the Ladoga Lake bed. In the passenger hall of Ladozhskiy Railway station there is a memorial stele with the names of more than 400 railwaymen from the Leningrad node, the Road of Victory and the Road of Life, who heroically died in line of duty during the blockade of Leningrad.
Museum's working hours: 10:00 - 17:00 Days off: Sunday and Monday
