MUZEON Park of Arts

When Soviet monuments were dismantled en masse in the city in the early 1990s, Moscow authorities decided to move them all to a designated site right behind the Central House of Artists. Modern sculptures were added later on, and the park eventually evolved into an outdoor museum. MUZEON, Moscow's largest art space of 24 hectares, is very much in vogue with the capital's creative crowd. MUZEON welcomes events in every genre, running the gamut from flower shows to poetry readings, and from experimental theatre performances to Electronica music concerts. MUZEON has its own theatre, electronic library, and cinema, which is frequented by Art House fans. It offers free master classes. When it is warm out, you can sometimes see people dancing the Salsa or the Cha-cha-cha in the park. Those are beginners, who take dance lessons at MUZEON.
