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.

  • Muzeon park of arts is like a walk through an art gallery in an open field. With works of Soviet era to contemporary artists placed at different spots in the park, people can enjoy art while taking a stroll through the park. The New tretyakov gallery is located inside the park. One can see Peter the Great statue on Moscow River up close from this park, while opposite of Moscow River visible, is the cathedral of Christ the saviour. Across the entrance of the Muzeon park is situated the central cultural park of Moscow. Overall the park is worth a visit. The view of Moscow river during sunset is magnificent and a walk beside the river is Serene.
  • Very nice for walking along the rivers. I retesting modern exhibits. There are paintings sold next to the museum both reproductions and original work of local artists.
  • This place is devoted to Soviet sculptures. Many people featured here are out of favor: Stalin, Lenin, Dzerzhinsky and others. There is an imposing metal sculpture of the Soviet emblem, as well as sculptures not related to politics, such as the whimsical plump mermaid representing the Moscow river, whose hair is shaped like the former. A unique and fascinating place.
  • Very nice park, full of interesting sculptures, some of them devoted to USSR period. There a monument to Peter the Great. The park is connected to the Gorky Park, another great place to spend time with family.
  • The park has some very interesting Soviet statues. In particular, the exhibit of totalitarian leaders and their victims. Great as a walk through on your way to Gorky park -or- as a partner exhibit to the new tretiakov gallery
