  • It's an easy walk from the city center to this museum. Very inexpensive admission. If you cannot read Russian or Ukrainian, get the audioguide. The museum walks you through the timeline of the disaste...  read more »
  • Next day the Chernobyl tour were intended, as a matter of fact the main reason why I came to Kiev, Chernobyl tour, because I feel that here, too, visited the preview. This is my actual Chernobyl tours are not exposed to radiation at all, compared to actually. At the time, nearly six months to shut down operations throughout the life of a firefighter, a soldier, a hastily recruited workers for guidance the most impressed. He got more vibrant over the actual tour witnessed but, at the time the incident occurred, of course, photographs and a guide in detail of the results says.

  • The Museum gives a lot of information about the accident and the consequences. This is a must-see before visiting Chernobyl

  • This museum is a half-memorial, half-educational site detailing the events before and after the Chernobyl Disaster. If you don't feel brave enough to go on an excursion to Pripyat and the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, this is the next best thing. In fact, I'd recommend visiting the museum first before the trip. It gives a detailed history of the disaster as well as providing some necessary context for what events occurred in what location. Definitely recommended. There is some signage in English. Pre-recorded audio tours are available in English for the non-Russian visitors.
  • Quite an interesting exposition telling the story of the greatest nuclear disaster in history. Entrace fee - 10 UAH. You `re also able to rent an audioguide in different languages (russian, ukrainian, english, german etc.) - 50 UAH (+ 100 UAH of a deposit you`ll be given back after visiting musium). It`s worth to visit it at least once to see the reasons why people should act more sensible.
  • Museum for the Chernobyl nuclear disaster; no attempt to embellish the facts of the disaster. Well presented to the visitors.
  • Pretty hard to find without Google maps. A crude and sad recollection of the immense disaster. With the audio guide aviable in English will take around 1-2 hours
  • Fascinating and sad museum.
