Founded in 2008 by Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich, Garage is the first philanthropic institution in Russia to create a comprehensive public mandate for contemporary art. Providing opportunities for dialogue, as well as the production of new work and ideas, the Museum's extensive program of exhibitions, events, education, research, and publishing reflects current developments in Russian and international culture. Central to these activities is the Museum's collection, which is the only public archive in the country related to the development of Russian contemporary art from the 1950s through to the present. On May 1, 2014, Garage Center for Contemporary Culture changed its name to Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, reflecting the co-founders' commitment to providing long-term public access to living artists and art histories. On June 12, 2015, the museum moved to its first permanent home in Gorky Park, in the heart of Moscow.

Dom Kino (Cinema House) is a creative club of Moscow film artists. The idea of creating a club that would become a center for development of cinematography came from Soviet filmmaker and scriptwriter Sergey Eisenstein. In 1934 his plan was fulfilled and the Central Cinema House (Dom Kino) was opened in an old mansion at Vasilievskaya Street. In the following years Dom Kino repeatedly changed its location. First, it was moved to the building of the Hotel "Sovetskaya" then to National Film Actor's Theatre at Povarskaya street and only in the late 60s the decision was made to provide a separate building for it. The building of Central Cinema House at Vasilievskaya street was constructed in 1968 according to the project of architect Evgeniy Stamo. In the new building a large hall for those times with a capacity of 1100 spectators was built. It hosted film premieres, stage performances, photo exhibitions. The club was accessible for holders of membership cards of the Union of Cinematographers or by special invitations. In 2016 the Cinema House announced changes in the format of the work and the club became open for public.
