About the Manege Central Exhibition Hall

Today, Moscow’s Manege hosts recreation areas in addition to the exhibition spaces. The main area houses the Central exhibition Hall, administrative offices, a conference hall, a cafe and a restaurant. An exhibition hall, galleries, a cloakroom and utility areas are housed on the first floor.


The Manege building was constructed in the first half of the 19th century by decree of Emperor Alexander I. The construction project was based on a design by engineer Agustín de Betancourt, and prominent Moscow architect of the time Joseph Bové worked on the building’s decorative design. Public holidays, special events and concerts have been held here on a regular basis since 1831. In 1975, the Central Exhibition Hall was opened in the Manege building.
