      The exhibition reveals that skating rinks were very popular in the late 19th century, the 1920s-30s were the age of athletes’ parades, football flourished in the 1940s, and hockey did in the 1970s, the Olympic Games-80 were a special outstanding event, the 1990s saw the blossoming of tennis, and we presently enjoy the boom of park sports and bicycle paths.

      Visitors will see a tennis racket of the late 19th century, old wooden skis, the first bicycle assembled in Moscow, skates of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, and modern skateboard and rollers.

      Rare medals and badges, Soviet sports posters, video chronicle and photos of athletes’ parades, Moscow bicycle races, records of “sporting” animated films and many other things are presented in separate boxes.
