Worker and Kolkhoz Woman Pavilion
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the pavilion will be temporarily closed until 15 January 2021.
Various museums from Moscow and elsewhere have been showcasing the best of the best of their collections at this VDNH exhibition pavilion since 2017. This is also the flagship venue of the VDNH educational programme. The building's lectorium and roof space are used for holding master classes, concerts and other events.
Date of Construction, Architect
The sculpture on top of the pavilion was conceptualised and designed by architect Boris Iofan, while Vera Mukhina was responsible for the actual sculpting. The monument was originally intended to adorn the USSR Pavilion at the World Expo of 1937 in Paris.
Cultural heritage site of federal importance.
The complex has a very thoroughly designed infrastructure that makes it comfortable and accessible for all visitors: there are several elevators, a ramp between the storeys, a baby care room and a gift shop that all are welcome to visit after attending a lecture or master class.
Another fun experience is going to an open-air event right at the feet of the 24-metre sculpture: on the roof of the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman pedestal, which offers a stunning Moscow panorama.
