The first wooden mausoleum (architect Schusev) was erected by the day of Lenin's funeral. It looked like a cube with a three-step pyramid.
During World War II, in June 1941, the remains of Lenin were evacuated to Tyumen. There is was in the main building of the present Tyumen State Agricultural Academy. In April 1945 the body of the Paramount Leader was returned to Moscow.
Lenin as well as Stalin were the highest-level traditional political leaders in the former USSR. Their reputation had remained intact and they had been admired commonly up until 1991 when the society became keen to reveal the unspoken facts of the Soviet Era.
From 1953 till 1961 Joseph Stalin had been placed in Mausoleum by the side of his predecessor, Lenin. Oct 30, 1961 was the day when XXII Communist Party Congress steted that Stalin had violated the covenants of Lenin seriously and therefore it was impossible to have his body in Mausoleum. On the night of Oct 31st / Nov 1st, 1961 Stalin's body was carried out of Mausoleum and buried in the tomb next to the Kremlin wall.
