The Muzeon Art Park was established in 1991 in the park on Krymskaya Naberezhnaya behind the State Tretyakov Gallery at Krymsky Val. The park has many sculptures but is most famous for the Soviet-era statues which were moved here after the fall of the USSR: statues of Lenin, Stalin, Dzerzhinsky and other revolutionaries and high-ranking communists. The statue of Stalin here, which is now missing a nose, is a scaled-down model of the giant statue which once stood in Dubna on the Moscow Canal. In 1998 a monument featuring faces carved in stone was placed around the statue in memory of victims of the dictator's regime. The statue of Dzerzhinsky once stood on the square outside Lubyanka and the statue of Gorky was once outside Belorussky Railway Station.
