Knowing the work that went into the Saturn V, being able to see the size of it in person at the Kennedy Space Center was almost a religious experience. I would love to be able to see an N1. Are there any in existence?

I've read the Wiki and it seems like there aren't but I can't find much information.

    $\begingroup$ Can you add a link to the specific Wikipedia page you are referencing back into your question? It's helpful because then readers can see what sources it cites for example an have some additional context. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jul 26 '20 at 1:11

No N1s remain intact as far as I know. Wikipedia is pretty clear about the disposition of the individual N1s constructed.

I found a photo gallery showing various scraps and wreckage from the N1, including a garden shed made from a payload fairing, but the origins of the pictures is unclear. Astronautix claims the "gazebos" are at Baikonur, which seems plausible; that's probably where you'd go to get a look at actual N1 hardware, such as it is.
