(3.5/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Национальный музей истории Украины — ведущий исторический музей Украины. С 1944 года расположен в Киеве, на Старокиевской горе. В музее истории Украины хранятся этнографические, археологические, произведения живописи и скульптуры, нумизматические коллекции, старопечатные книги и прочие исторические экспонаты. Здание музея, получившее статус памятника архитектуры, сооружено в 1937—1939 гг. по проекту архитектора И. Ю. Каракиса и первоначально предназначалось для первой во всей Украинской Республике художественной школы.Архитектура и история зданияИскусствоведы современного путеводителя по Киеву следующим образом описали здание:Другие, дополняют:Перед зданием архитектор спроектировал лестницу интересной формы с фонарными стойками. Возле здания, позже, на смотровой площадке установлен камень с высеченными на нём словами Нестора Летописца «отсюда руска земля стала быть» на древнеславянском.Художественная школаЗдание строилось первой архитектурной мастерской Горсоветa как первая в Киеве и первая во всей Украинской Республике художественная школа.Изначальное место расположенияИзначально здание проектировалось для строительства на ул. Ленина, о чём свидетельствует запись, сделанная автором в 1980 году: «В начале тридцатых годов Киевским горисполкомом мне как архитектору мастерской Горсовета было поручено проектировать художественную школу на участке, где сейчас строится здание „Киевпроект“ по улице Ленина — несколько левее. Проект был сделан и утвержден всеми инстанциями». Также об изначальном планировании расположения строительства на улице Ленина было написано в газете «Большевик» от февраля 1936 г. «В центрі м. Києва на вул. Леніна обрано місце для будівництва школи, що виховуватиме художньо обдарованих дітей» (что переводится как «В центре г. Киева на ул. Ленина выбрано место для строительства школы, чтобы воспитывать художественно одаренных детей»).

  • Really liked it! Ooogromnaja Exposition, 4 floors are filled with exhibits, which could not be consulted for a couple of hours because I want to stay near each exhibit, explore the history of each item, feel. The ticket costs 50 UAH, and if you come up to 5-person family, the whole family only 100 UAH per entry. The price is absolutely low for such an incredible place. Recommend!

  • In the National Museum of the history of Ukraine is trying to meet up to the present the diversity of the Ukrainian history. A visit to the Museum is worthwhile also because of its fantastic views which can be enjoyed from here through the District of Podil and the Dnieper River.

  • Nice place to visit if you like museums. One of the biggest exhibition in Ukraine
  • Too old-fashioned, but still interesting
  • Good museum with personal guidance if you're ready to pay.
  • Interesting and in a beautiful location.
  • Vìdvìlali Museum of the whole family on Sunday with great pleasure. The initiator was a toddler (4.5 years), so the tour staged a first for him. A family ticket for the three cost 60 UAH. As it turned out, a guide for the family, too, costs 60 UAH. We ordered. Advance povìdomivili administrator that tour we want primarily to small. Tour we spent a wonderful specialist and Oksana Tereschuk. Available, interesting, exciting. 3 hours in muzeì passed unnoticed. Small all the time carefully listening, though usually it lasts for 15 minutes. Still super convenient, important and original attribute had a little complicated high chair for baby. Small bore and laid out his own for vsìêì ekskursìì, the Museum passed I owe my legs and never requested on hand. The exposition is very liked. We plan to go back and continue the review soon.
