Many communist USSR satellite nations had a ton of statues of communist leaders. Once the USSR fell the statues were removed, however, they can still be seen in museums.
After Lithuania regained its independence in 1990, various Soviet statues were taken down and dumped in different places. Malinauskas requested the Lithuanian authorities to grant him the possession of the sculptures, so that he could build a privately financed museum.

Many of its features are re-creations of Soviet Gulag prison camps: wooden paths, guard towers, and barbed-wire fences.
There is a commie statues graveyard in Estonia.
