Muzeon Art Park, Moscow

4.6
#10 of 498 in Museums in Moscow
Get a glimpse of Russia's artistic past at Muzeon Art Park, a space dedicated to statues and monuments primarily from the days of the Soviet Union. The park, home to more than 700 pieces, is something of a time capsule from an era when socialist realist styles dominated public spaces around the country. You can find all sorts of famous figures among the multitude of statues, including the infamous Josef Stalin and Vladimir Lenin, along with the equally ubiquitous hammer-and-sickle symbols of the former USSR. You'll see plenty of generic statues dedicated to workers, collective farmers, and other Soviet archetypes as well. Take special note of the fact that many of the statues are somewhat damaged; this is a result of their abandonment after the collapse of Communism, and many were toppled and left to degrade before they came to the collection beginning in 1992.

  • Museon park called the cemetery for old monuments. But to me, it seems like it's not a cemetery, a hospital, because monuments gave new life. The younger generation should know our history, and now it is very convenient to do because all the monuments are in one place. Traveling through the Park you can explore the art of all times.

  • Great-great place for art lovers and anyone who loves parks. Just stroll around and try to guess what these strange sculptures might mean :)
  • A great place for walks with babies and toddlers to toddle around. There are amenities available, too. However in women's wc there's not enough space and faucet was broken
  • A must see. Something for everyone. Food and drink of various kinds. Art exhibitions, boiler, skate park, gymnastics and dancing. A must visit.
  • Park near by modern art museum. With bike and roller path. Filled with art sculptures. Nice place to rest and read.
  • Great and unexpected sculptures. Not crowdy, calm and cozy place.
