    It is very good and interesting , I liked that there are some artefacts that you can touch . But it is a little bit small for me  more »

    The museum is cosy conveniently located, but it lacks the most important - exposition is too small. You only need 30 minutes to see it all.  more »

    Interesting exhibitions constantly happening something interesting. Auctions, art projects and much more. In close proximity to m. Teptrpl'naja.

  • OMG, can't believe how there is nothing to see here except for a few posters. I was here 17 June 2017, and I double-checked with the staff on duty and she confirmed its just that small 150sqft room with the posters. Absolutely the worst "museum" I've been to... literally just a few graphics posters. Price is "cheap" at 35UAH but guaranteed a waste of money. I came expecting to learn about this country and city's history, but I'm at a lost of words how there is nothing here... unbelievable!!!
  • Fun, nice pictures, some artifacts and a cool diorama. Worth a one hour visit.
  • An interesting museum with good prices. Some of the exhibitions are free. At least in April 2016 the had an interesting exhibition of Chernobyl where you could visit Pripiat with vr-glasses.
  • This place gives you a thorough insight of the Ukraine history. By far I think this museum is the one of the best museums of Kiev. Definitely worth coming if your in the area. One of the cons is it needs to be better maintained outside. The appearance of the building looks nice but as I walked closer, I noticed it a bit dirty. Also there were drunk people laying beside the building, it felt a bit unsafe.
  • Very good museum. The history of Kyiv is a must-know.

Where to stay in Kiev

To stay in the thick of things, book a room in the heart of Kiev, where hotels range from mid-range to five-star and offer free Wi-Fi, indoor swimming pools, and modern spa and fitness facilities. This part of town also keeps you close to the metro and the central train station, providing quick links to the surrounding region. For something a bit more budget-friendly, consider the city's hostels, many of which organize evening activities like movie nights and bar tours.
