The exhibits were great. Comprehensive exhibition of Ukraine’s history. Unfortunately very little was English which was very frustrating. It would be so much more rewarding if a little more effort could be put into a country’s national museum of history.

Good for rainy day. Good for hot summer day as well. Ukraine now is not a happy country - you'll feel this in this museum. Return to the happy soviet past is impossible. War is standing on the porch. Unfortunately. Besides the war, there are...More
