Housed in a 1780s mansion acquired by Lev Kirillovitch Razumovsky and former premises of the Moscow English Club (the largest gentleman's gathering in the city) from 1831, this grand architectural monument of late classicism of the XVIII century was opened in 1924 as the Museum of Revolution. In 1998 it was renamed the and the new name is State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia. The permanent exhibition is dedicated to the events of Russian history in the twentieth century. The museum often hosts temporary exhibitions.
