Logistics in art

The Logistics Museum recommends you to visit other interesting museums that reflect various highly specialized areas of practical logistics as well as other related fields.

Museum of Logistics

Tokyo, Japan

This is a museum, which is a bit more thematically related to our specialized museum of logistics. The museum was opened in 1998, inheriting the Nippon Express Museum collection: more than 12,000 articles about transportation and 40,000 documentary images, showing the history of the Nippon Express Company. The history of the material-technical supply in Japan is depicted on the second floor, while a reading hall and a multimedia room are situated on the third floor.

The Royal Logistics Corps Museum

Surrey, Great Britain

The Royal Logistic Corps (RLC) was formed in 1993 from the amalgamation of The Royal Pioneer Corps, the Army Catering Corps, the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, the Royal Corps of Transport and the Postal and Courier Section of the Royal Engineers. At the same time the RLC Museum was established as the Regimental Museum for the newly formed Corps. It tells the story of logistical support to the British Army from the time of Oliver Cromwell to the present. Here the visitor can examine how over the last 500 years the soldier has been transported, fed, supplied with arms and equipment and kept in touch with loved ones.

The Canadian Forces Logistics Museum

Montreal, Canada

The museum has more than 10,000 artifacts. The presented material reflects the history of the Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps (RCOC) and its successor, the Canadian Forces Logistics Branch. The museum’s collection is supplemented with the largest collection of Canadian military vehicles and artillery pieces in Quebec.

The Central Museum of Railway Transport

Saint Petersburg, Russia

The museum’s collection reflects the history of the railroad: locomotives, carriages, rail cars, communication, automatic equipment and means of control, construction and roadway machines, bridges and other constructional works. The museum’s main exposition, along with its authentic showcase items, contains unique models of steam locomotives, rail cars, and bridges. The museum’s rich collection of photos will present the methods of railroad construction in Russia and the former Soviet Union and describe the development and evolution of railroad technology.

The Grandmaket project

Saint Petersburg, Russia

The unique Russian Federation lay-out, picturing the whole country from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka, is opening in St. Petersburg in 2011. In the project called “The Grandmaket” we have used the ideas and techniques of the tradition of making table lay-outs of the well-known places and historical events once so popular in the Soviet Union. However, the tradition somewhat deteriorated in the post-Soviet years so the project is the attempt to both restore the tradition and give our visitors overview of the whole country.

State Memorial Museum of Defense and the Siege of Leningrad

Saint Petersburg, Russia

The State Memorial Museum of Defense and the Siege of Leningrad is the only cultural-educational organization fully dedicated to preserving the history of the Siege of Leningrad during WWII. Its exposition includes documents and personal items from the Great Patriotic War, depicting the courage and heroism of the people defending the city of Leningrad.

Central Customs Museum of the Russian Federation

Moscow, Russia

The museum’s exposition extensively depicts the main stages of history in the formation and development of the customs service in Russia from the 9th century to the creation of the General Customs Committee Board during the council of ministers of the USSR in 1986. We also recommend viewing the Siberian Customs Administration museum reference guide, which can be found on the website of the All-Russian Union of Veterans of Customs.

Museum of Packing

Moscow, Russia

A stroll through the museum will plunge you into the world of labeling and packaging. Travel through their history and development, learn who, when, and how packaging was made in the past, how it is produced today, and what kind of packaging might we see in the future. You will learn the secrets of packaging production and find out what happens after it is used up.

The German Mining Museum

Bochum, Germany

The German Mining Museum, which was founded in 1930, gives visitors a rare insight into the underground world of tunnels and mine shafts. The 68 metre high winding tower, which stands very near the City’s public park, is one of Bochum’s most prominent landmarks.

Maritiem Museum Rotterdam

Rotterdam, Netherlands

The Maritime Museum is one of the world’s top maritime museums. In addition to high-profile exhibits and its high quality collection the museum offers an extensive discussions and events programme for a wide audience. Moored alongside, in all its glory, is the museum ship 'Buffel'.
