It looks like from the video that they have a large scale model of the N-1
on the floor of the pavilion, painted white.

My brother did his PhD thesis on the low energy part of the cosmic ray
spectrum that is blocked by the atmosphere.  He used the cosmic ray damage
to the lexan plastic in Jim Lovell's Apollo-8 helmet

He and his group attended a conference in Moscow about their work after
that.  While he was there he visited the Cosmos Pavilion which was full of
spacecraft models at the time.  By the time I got there in 2000, all of that
was gone except for a few models way at the back

So, I am glad to see that the pavilion has been brought back and it appears
that it has an impressive set of displays.

I was there in April, 1975, when I was a producer for CBS News, preparing
for the ASTP flight. After our tour, we got in the bureau car, a Chevy, a
fairly rare brand in Moscow then. It struck me as quite ironic that when we
exited this pavilion of great Soviet achievement, we were immediately
surrounded by a large crowd of Muscovites, who seemed more impressed with
how many horsepower the car had than they were with all the spacecraft and
rockets in the exhibition.

when we first went to Moscow in 1983, we had
a heck of a time getting access to that place
the guides kept acting like they did not know
what we were talking about, and initially would
only take us to the Tsiolkovsky Monument
