  • Nothing extremely outstanding (I mean there is no one-of-a-kind-the -only-one-in-the-world painting that makes lines like Mona Lisa in Louvre) but the entry fee is less than 2 USD now and it's complet...  more »
  • It's a terrific, compact history of 500 years or so of Ukrainian art, starting with some great altar pieces in the Byzantine style, some Mannerist religious sculptures in wood, classic portraits of Uk...  more »
  • 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.

  • 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.
