  • Spent the afternoon here on a chilly day. Lots to see. Lovely old building in the heart of Kiev. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • Not just a delightful Museum with excellent collection, but also a team that continually works, presents interesting projects, allowing you to take a look at the exhibits and stories from the other side. The guides offer such a choice that everyone will find something for themselves. My last impression-"truth in wine, especially the second Hall with Oriental exhibits for storing and drinking beverages. How thrilling. You can also book excursions for individual halls. We walked on fours "Dutch painting." The Guide devotes attention to minute details of paintings, described the genesis of coloristic techniques .... Two hours just flew everywhere

  • From my point of view, this is the best art museum in Kyiv. Also, you can read about each room and about great part of paintings. Must see - icons dated from the VI century.
  • We enjoyed our visit to the museum. The personnel is attentive and engaged, museum is small but interesting. You can take pictures and have a tour around the exhibition with a guide.
  • Awesome place. Especially the building architecture itself is amazing
  • Did you know that Sergius and Bakkhus, one of the oldest icons in the world is stored here?
  • Small but very nice museum. You could have an overview of art of different epoches in the atmosphere of old house.
