Muzeon Art Park, Moscow

4.6
#9 of 241 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.

  • It's a particular Park because dotted with statues of all times. There is of course the deboulonnees statues dating from the Soviet era. You will find busts and statues of the best-known leaders but also of more secondary characters of the Nomenklatura. Some could be a little damaged during their unbolting has not always have to happen in a peaceful atmosphere. But you will also see statues dating from the 1990s and 2000s who all are also interesting and intriguing, marked by a willingness to explore new art forms after the Soviet straitjacket. And at the bend of a path you will come across a few portraits of celebrities such as Pushkin and Gogol. Finally there is the huge statue of Pierre le Grand, very kitschy but still impressive. It's a beautiful park where it is very pleasant to stroll all starting to discover its countless statues.

  • Come to the Park and regularly cite their friends-foreigners who have been literally all seen here! There's always that take a look at children and adults frolicking in the heat in the fountain, look at the picture of the Vernissage, and be sure to visit grandfather Mazay with his hares!

  • Nice Park along the Moscow river. You walk between modern sculptures and statues and symbols of the old regime dismantled and supported them. A nice walk that can start in the northern part of the Park and continue to the South, crossing the road, taking in the Gorky Park.

  • Very attractive place. Water fountains from the ground are cool at summer. A lot of unusual sculptures. Lovely outdoor lights are suitable for evening dates.
  • Great idea! Pleasant atmosphere except for the beef burger smell on the river front 😢
  • I was impressed by this place. A huge area for pictures, for different installations. Lots of great artists, who presented their works by themselves. And we saw all this magic just for 500 rubles. Price is nothing
  • A big white building .... with jewels inside ... the art from the post-Tsar period until today !! Really interesting !! Entrance feed 500.- Rub
  • European style promenade, well designed, with some food boots, great coffee place like "Cofebrod", nice crowd, some authentic art and paintings are offered for sale on a "garage sale" style mini market(sellers are not painters or artists, simply middlemen resellers;))...
