Zair Azgur Memorial Museum and Workshop


Here's yet another "classical" museum with plenty of Soviet artifacts. One of Belarus’ most famous sculptors, Zair Azgur authored many sculptures in Minsk, including Lenin's monument and statues of poet Jakub Kolas and his literary heroes. Housed inside the sculptor's former workshop, the museum allows you to feel as a Lilliput in the country of Soviet-made Gullivers. If you are lucky, you can also get some alternative culture experience. The museum’s management is open to creative ideas and cultural initiatives that are allowed to organize events here. Just imagine: a hall with giant sculptures along the walls turns into a stage for Belarus poetry evenings, indie music concerts and art performances.
