Muzeon Art Park, Moscow

(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • So much fun to see statues that have fallen out of favor. Imagine if we had kept all the Saddam Hussein (albeit decapitated) statues in a random park. This park has a bunch of Karl Marx, Stalin, Lenin...  more »
  • The Park can be visited in all seasons. There are many Soviet statues déboulonnées and placed in the garden. A unusual visit to a very nice card.

  • One of the best city parks. And probably the most beautiful one)
  • Very beautiful! I loved the art and sculptures!
  • Free spirited kind of park with a lot of sculptures. And a totaly different atmosphere from the gorky park which is across the road.
