“Enjoyable and educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

We were there on a weekday with few people around. The result was a private seminar from the guide/hostess on Ukraianian history and the migration to Saskstchewan. The museum is small enough that you can see the whole thing in 1-2 hours even reading much of the history and descriptions. Worth the experience. After leaving we now understand much better what is happening in the Ukraine today.

“Ukrainian fabrics, history, and customs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Here is an excellent view of Ukrainian immigration to Canada with a great oral-history movie explaining Ukrainian life. Heavy on magnificent embroidery and folk costumes, the museum displays all manner of cultural dress. It also has examples of Ukrainian banknotes from the early 1900s.
Easy to miss. The museum is very close to the Park Town Hotel but hidden behind some bushes. The front door is opposite the 5-minute loading zone on Spadina Crescent.

“Interesting presentation, knowledgable staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

I visited the permanent display explaining Ukrainian immigration and, also, excellent temporary displays of William Kurilek, artist, and also Ukrainian currency of the revolutionary period. I was almost the only visitor so I had time to discuss history and current issues with the knowledgable staff. Well worth a visit whether one is of Ukrainian background or not.

“Nice museum documenting settling of Western Canada by Ukraianians”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

My father emigrated from Poland after the Second World War and had to adapt to the New World. However, this museum shows the greater hardships these people overcame to establish themselves as a proud cultural community of Western Canada. The museum, although only has a couple of rooms of exhibits does an excellent job documenting what these immigrants when through to finally establish their homesteads and farms in the West. The National Film Board short documentary film on William Kurelek is outstanding. It narrates the childhood memories of Kurelek and show his paintings illustrating his memories.
