Was there on May days. The weather was rainy and windy, as well as awful. Ee had some walk alongside the park, visited a few places. The territory has become better. Less trade, more fun, more culture, more beautiful. The entrance is free. There are electromobiles to carry you around, bikes or scooters to hire. For kids and adults there... More

It's a good place to visit with kids. Nice Politech Museum, Horror hall and upside down house - good for chieldren to amuse. Some cafes are aslo available, don't expect cheap prices - it is still Moscow)) It reminds a former Soviet time from every building you see, but the atmosphere's been already chaged. Quite convenient to reach by tube.... More

Very neat place, sort of odd in the winter as much is closed. The place is huge and we didn't see but 1/2 as it was russia in the winter. You could see how this was the amzing Soviet worlds fair once.

You can plan the whole day for visiting this former Soviet exhibition area. It has lots of things to do for fun. Roller-skating, skating (in winter) and what not. I never miss the Armenia pavillion with its tasting hall)))

I went to Moscow with my parents in 1975. The Exposition Center - a proud monument to the Soviets, was just as important as Red Square then, with our Intourist Guide making sure we were able to learn all about the different Ministries and the importance of what each were doing. It was very cool. Fast forward 40 years, and... More

We visited this place on a pretty cold day in December. I can't say I would recommend the food, but the honey drink called Meed that they sell outside was excellent. Also wanted to take in the Soviet architecture while it was still there. There is a nice botanical garden that is pleasant to visit in the summer, but there... More

Our tour guide told us to go here and to rent bikes since this center is huge! My husband and I rented a double bike (that was fun for a first time experience), and my kids each rented bikes just outside of the exhibit. There is a house that is upside down inside the center, everything has been glued or... More

I went here with a friend on a rainy afternoon in Moscow, but it was still fun! Plenty of photo opportunities, a nice open expanse to walk in, and the section with the fountains and the pavilions is fantastic! A great place to relax and escape the masses of tourists on red square and other famous moscow attractions. a must-see.

We visited in november, it was snowing a bit so all the fountains were off. However the rollercoasters were open as well as restaurants and several fairs so it was definitely worth visiting. The whole area is huge! You can spend whole day here. Also monorail is worth visiting!
