  • Many times was in Kiev, but somehow did not get into the Museum, but in vain. At the end of December in Kiev and was able to visit with his Ukrainian friends went to this museum. A very interesting Museum and when visiting Kiev, I advise to visit! It collected many objects of art and culture of European and Asian. Submitted by medieval art, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, classicism. Begins with Oriental art here you can see an interesting collection of netsuke, Chinese painting XV-XX centuries, carvings of bone and wood. Further Iranian faiences, handmade carpets, bronzes, works of Indian culture-like most statues of Indian gods. In general everything is represented in this museum does not describe is a must see. Pictures was set. The Museum staff will gladly talked about the history of this wonderful Museum and history Street Tereschenkivska. The ladies who work there, invited for concerts and new exhibitions with the words: "you still come!" was actually very nice! The ticket costs 60 UAH (approximately 132 rubles). Take pictures on your phone for free.

  • In my opinion, this museum is the best collection of Western art, perhaps in the whole Ukraine. The building itself, and the collection is the offspring of a famous and wealthy family Khanenko. They had no children, all their time and money, they have dedicated the collection this collection. It really is unique, there are Rubens, Velasquez, Goya, art of Japan and China. Ancient Orthodox icons. In May 1917 Khanenko died without seeing the fruits of the revolution. His wife, was forced to give all the new Soviet State and live in the stables of his house. Museum and today looks favorite brainchild of Museum workers.

  • The Museum is located in the Centre, at the mansion, where the preserved interiors. Homeowners collected collection passed as a gift Kyiv, although does not compete with prominent European museums, but has its own masterpieces, both in European and Eastern Division. Good musical evenings, excursions and other activities.
