In all, the University Museum of History has more than 2,000 exhibits telling about the achievements of the Institute, its leaders, distinguished scholars, graduates and their role in the history of the country and the region.

Foreign students were told how the university developed from the moment of its foundation to this day. They found out with great interest that the history of Politech began in 1930 when Saratov State Automobile and Road Institute appeared in the region.
