  • Main building and the annex of the Museum of history. The main building is situated on the freedom Boulevard Park. Branch is situated in rich square. 16th century Renaissance period is. It is characterized by a black wall. Further investigations.

  • Lviv: I expect the history of Galicia, but regrets the lack of a local collection. There are plenty of other areas, such as France or Germany collection

  • We visited the exhibits housed in No. 4 which focus on the creation of independent Ukraine and the Ukrainian Dispora. Whilst cheap (30 UAH per person) and well stocked, the museum lacks much in the wa...  more »

  • Pros: -good for history buffs, lots of original documents and descriptions of exhibits that give an interesting survey of the region's history -cheap entrance (10 UAH × 3 exhibits) -the women that "work" the exhibits seem to have a general knowledge about the museum's contents -excursions are available Cons: -this isn't necessarily a con, more so a warning: many of the exhibits are only in Ukrainian. Some exhibits have a little booklet in the room with English translation, but I was otherwise translating for my English-speaking parents. -not all exhibits are placed into context with a description board that explains what you are looking at. You are reliant on the little booklets (or Google) if you cannot read Ukrainian. Overall, I enjoyed it a lot! It was an unexpected surprise and totally worth my time and the price. Would recommend, especially with a guide. This museum is the name for the entire building, which also houses the Western Ukraine exhibit, which bamboozles Google Maps.
  • This place is worthwhile to have a coffee at the courtyard. For history, go visit another one called "Ancient History Museum" across the courthouse.
  • Right place to collect information about Ukraine! 10UAH ticket for every floor. Photos +20UAH.
  • Confusing. No texts in English
  • Great collection

Where to stay in Lviv

Although many visitors to Lviv stay near the relatively expensive town center, the city offers plenty of budget-friendly options within walking distance of this central district. Guesthouses and small hostels provide simple but tidy rooms with luggage storage and free Wi-Fi. Alternatively, look for mid-range hotels near public bus stops, where you'll have quick access to the major sights at considerably less cost than the centrally located boutique hotels.
