  • I would like to note the variety of exhibitions held in the Museum. And, especially, parallel to them, cultural program: lectures, film screenings, etc. p. So you can go there on several occasions. But the main exhibition is enough interesting and diverse. And building exceptional. One drawback is a high staircase in front of the entrance and the lack of ramp.

  • It located not very far from busy freedom square shopping street, and it has some nice collections, but it is not as good as other museum in most large cities Western Europe  more »
  • Came the Group enough adults and brought up children, pupils of the art school. The tour is not ordered, because with us was a fine teacher of children. Not a huge group, man 15. At the entrance to have heard from the administrator that "it is necessary to warn in advance that will come such a big group" throughout the visit and we were accompanied by the horror in the eyes of the female halls and not too hidden replica, like "when they leave." Some do not even shy to customize from children to quickly went out of the room. The impression that the Museum is absolutely not interested in visitors. The fewer people they calmer work. This is a very contrasted, for example, with the Museum of Khanenko. The exposition itself, if no special exhibitions, rather you poor thing. I know that they have in the store a lot more masterpieces than billed. But from what is available, the amazing work of modernists (one of them just on @alfattaak: Museum here). If you don't pay attention to the staff (which is difficult), then the rest of the Museum is very interesting.

  • Very nice collection of paintings. Icons from different periods and an interesting collection of early socialist art: a truely creative period!
  • Best place to get yourself familiarized with art history of Ukraine. Highlights from medieval icons to nonconformist art from 1960's are on permanent display on 2 floors + there's a diverse programme of new temporary shows on view every 2-3 months
  • Very interesting place for art people. Some authors were very interesting. You can spend 1.5 hour here. Also, price is cheap. Only building condition isn't so good.
  • I didn't like it very much on my first visit, but when I returned, I enjoyed all of the art here immensely. There are many old icons, lots of genre studies from the 19th century, and a strong collection of 20th century modernist art.
  • Nice place to be. Can join special classes being offered here in relation to drawing & painting. Some of the painting & drawing demonstrated here are master piece. Must to see place if you are interested in Art.
