  • 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.

  • It's situated in beautiful old building, which seems like it was repaired not much long ago. Tickets are cheap: with student id you can get ticket for 25 UAHs, but if you want to make photos, even mobile phones you need to pay extra 10 UAHs. May exhibition is smaller than I expected, so maximum time I spent there was like 30 minutes.
  • Pity that there are not more signs in English. Otherwise not a bad museum, not too many exhibits. Charge extra for exhibitions.
  • There is a large collection of artifacts here - but without much of a unifying narrative to tie everything together. Early medical instruments, glasses, Ukrainian text books, and so on. For me, the best part was seeing old photographs of Kyiv and comparing it to how Kyiv is now. I would have liked to have seen more photography like this.
  • On the small size but has decent quality exhibits.
  • A few interesting fotos about the city development, but lacking explanations in English.

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.
