After seeing all of the top museums of Chicago, the Ukrainian Museum was by far the best one we saw. The dedication of the women working there and their sharing the love of their country and their traditions was very moving. A wonderful experience!

A very modest $5 donation person gets you a wealth of information and understanding about Ukrainian heritage and culture and a personal tour of the museum by one of its curators. The curator speaks Ukrainian (naturally) and English of course so if you have Ukrainian...More
