Description

Muzeon Park of Arts is one of the places in Moscow you fall in love with once and for all. It happily combines the Soviet past and the latest novelties of Moscow life. Muzeon borders on Gorky Park : they are joined by an embankment. It is the only park within the Garden Ring.

The idea of creating a “park of arts” in this place was put forward by Soviet minister of Culture Ekaterina Furtseva. The project was launched in 1970 with the construction of the Central House of Artists and the construction of a new building of the Tretyakov Gallery (to architects N. Sukoyan and Y. Sheverdyayev’s design). In its modern layout the Muzeon Park of Arts was developed in the early 1990s. After the collapse of the USSR numerous monuments of the Soviet epoch were dismantled. There was no call for them anymore, which prompted the creation of an open-air museum of Soviet culture. A vast territory of the square garden by the Central House of Artists on Krymsky Val was a perfect choice for that purpose.

  • This open-air museum features over 700 Soviet sculptures, some recognized as masterpieces of monumental sculpture.
  • Visitors can buy paintings by contemporary Moscow artists at pavilions lined along the Moskva River.
  • The park boasts sophisticated landscape design with Alpine rock gardens, large flowerbeds, fountains, benches, gazebos and podiums.
  • The park offers tours, exhibitions, lectures on architecture, art and music along with concerts, yoga lessons and bicycle rentals.
  • Nearby are some exciting sights such as the Moscow Central House of Artists, Gorky Park and the Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val.
  • Visitor information is available in English.
