The main part of the UMMC Auto Museum's exhibit is the collection of soviet cars. It tracks the history of soviet auto manufacturing through all its stages, starting from the very first mass produced soviet cars GAZ-A to the very rare models from the 1990s.
The collection has cars from all the leading USSR automobile manufacturers:
- Gorky Automobile Plant;
- Moscow plant of small cars (later - AZLK);
- Zaporizhia Automobile Building Plant;
- PO "Izhmash";
- Volga Automobile Plant, etc.
The exposition includes not only the well-known models of “Moskvitch”, “Pobeda”, “Volga”, “Zhiguli”, all of which at one time or the other were Soviet nation's preferred car models, but also quite rare modifications of experimental cars that were never mass produced.
