  • Going to a certain country is sure to go to the Museum. Museum is very big and full, holding numerous exhibits neat science, even independent of war-related collections. Just a question: why are there no English explanation?!

  • Lost of floors covering centuries of history. Most of it in Ukrainian, although some English transcriptions present. Could easily spend half a day in there.
  • Cool collection of random historical artefacts. A place to meet fellow foreigners.
  • There seemed to be missing a connection between rooms, fist there were some stone age and bronze age, then some 19th century coin collection, followed by the middle ages and renaissance. Back and forth through the ages, and some stuff in there. And it seemed to be like an afterthought if there were some explanations in English.
  • Gorgeous museum with many artefacts and history
  • Interesting museam covering Ukrainian history from beginning to recent events
