The creators of the traveling exhibition promise such an effect of presence, which is not found in any stationary museum about the Great Patriotic War. The Victory Train literally plunges the visitor into the events of that time. A route is a transition from one carriage to another. The years before the start of the war – the Great Patriotic War – and the long-awaited Victory.

Nine of the 12 cars are for display. Instead of windows, there are screens with video footage from the chronicle of the war years. And the feeling that you see a real picture outside the window. Throughout the route, visitors are accompanied by an audio guide, according to Sputnik Belarus.

“The project is immersive, it is unique in that the visitor finds himself inside the exhibition. And he can touch objects. Listening to the audio story of the typist Lydia is a collective image created on the basis of the stories of real women who worked on the railway during the war years,” says the team coordinator “Nevsky battle-painter” Margarita Popova.

To achieve the effect of presence, the creators of the exhibition used sound effects, numerous projectors and high-definition screens. Theater light, holograms, presence detectors, photo wallpaper. And hundreds more figures. And almost all of them have real prototypes. They created sculptures based on photographs of the war years. Household items and props also add realism. For example, a weapon of that time, a soldier’s uniform.

“I just don’t have words. I believe that there is no need for lectures about the war. You need to bring young people here so that they can just watch. War in nature. Whoever has not heard about the war, he will understand everything here,” the veteran of the Great Patriotic War is convinced war Ivan Sinelshchikov.
