New Tretyakov Gallery and Sculpture Park
The New Tretyakov Gallery is a gallery of contemporary art. This museum is associated with the State Tretyakov Gallery which displays Russian fine art. Be careful not to get confused. The original Tretyakov Gallery is the main branch and it is a place for classical art and prerevolutionary Russian art. The Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val showcase Soviet art and avant-garde artists such as Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich and other 20th century artists.
This gallery is placed on the banks of the Moscow river and right across of Gorky Park. The building, in 1960’s style, is very unappealing but once inside the space is quite charming. There are a Couple of rooms containing a collection of art which represent Soviet propaganda. As most tourists in Moscow, my interest was in the socialist realist and revolutionary art. I recommend a visit even if you don’t like modern art.

Here is a great video about the gallery
Near the Gallery of modern art, there is a sculpture garden called Fallen Monument Park, also known by The graveyard of fallen monuments. This park displays statues of former the Soviet Union. After the Soviet Union collapsed, many statues were removed from their pedestals and left here.
