1. The bldg with hist of western ukraine and diaspora was closed for renovation. 2. The so-called royal rooms were small and nothing special; the Italian courtyard was, well, a small courtyard that didn't justify a separate admission fee; and the obnoxious woman selling tickets...More

Situated just at the eastern end of Lviv old town square, the Lviv Museum is an interesting way to spend a couple of hours looking at artefacts from Ukraine and the Galicia region's past. Or at least, to attempt to; be warned that very little...More

The museum is interesting, but the staff does not so helpful and I think none of them knows English. They don't want to speak Russian as well, only Ukrainian can help you.
