An important piece of Russian history, Vladimir Lenin's embalmed body lies on display at Lenin's Mausoleum. This tomb has publically exhibited the communist leader's body since shortly after his death in 1924. Architect Aleksey Shchusev built the original wooden mausoleum on Red Square near the Kremlin wall for the "Father of the Revolution." Lenin's body was kept in a number of different sarcophaguses over the years, and the site has undergone numerous renovations. Though the body is not as well preserved as it once was, but the museum remains an important site in Moscow from the Soviet Era.
