Guests will learn how the Main Exhibition of the Country has been growing and functioning over the years, what elements it consists of and how they have changed. Your visit will be fun and exciting, thanks to interactive exhibits, unique educational board games, and an impressive media centre — the first-ever public database dedicated to the 80 years of VDNH history.
The museum space, with a twelve-segment display, a media screen, and interactive panels, is divided into five themed zones: Friendship of Peoples, Parade of Victories, All-Peoples University, City of Wonders, and One Day at the Exhibition.
The Friendship of Peoples section talks about the contribution of different Soviet republics into the creation and development of VDNH as well as famous international guests who visited it.
In the Parade of Victories section, guests can learn more about the life of our country after the World War II, about the exhibits and pavilions dedicated to our achievements in agriculture, heavy industry, and other areas.
All-Peoples University is dedicated to our scientific breakthroughs. They have always been an important element in the organisation of exhibitions and temporary expositions.
A visit to the City of Wonders section will be a fascinating journey through time, which aims to see how the architectural pearls of the country's Main Exhibition looked decades ago.
At One Day at the Exhibition, you will see what attracted visitors to VDNH in different periods of history. Interestingly enough, but the main walking route has not changed much over the years — it has always passed through such iconic places as the Central Alley, the Cosmos pavilion and the Green Theatre.
The exposition employs an extensive database of digitalised archive photos, schemes, documents, and newsreels. It will keep growing, getting updated to bring together dozens of thousands of materials.
OPENING HOURS: from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily
VENUE: the right wing of the Main Entrance.
ADMISSION: free, until 8 September.
