  • Façade me impressed. It's cool when building features not standard bas-reliefs and ornaments, and grains of your native country. Along the front of the coats of arms of the county-level cities are placed in the Poltava Province. This museum is one of the first and most prominent samples of the Ukrainian romanticism * (Ukrainian modernism *). * This means that detail present ethnic manifestations: decorative and fine arts, elements of folk architecture, folklore, as well as natural features of a certain territory. The Museum building is built on the downhill, so the main façade, the building has two and a half floors and courtyard — three and a half. We have not got to the Museum because it was Sunday evening, but the description online says that inside is no less spectacular.

  • This Museum site in Center City is well set up (there are among other things numerous beautiful dioramas) and is a nice picture of local history and culture, going from older anecdotes right up to the latest episodes of Ukrainian history. I've been there on 16 July and I recommend visiting both adults and children.

  • Museum liked both outside and inside. 3 floors of cognitive information for both children and adults. Photo permission for a fee but I recommend to pay, there's that photograph

  • The building itself is amazing, beautiful architecture! Inside display isn't as visually striking neither educative for us tourists given that all you can do in here is see items since no tags are in English. Why not? Who knows, but it makes the whole experience boring and less attractive. .. and you need a special ticket/pass to take pictures inside, even if it's a phone.
  • In terms of just the building, it's gorgeous inside and outside. The displays are also really good; starting from the geology, flora, and fauna of the area. Then there are the local history areas and modern times. Well worth a visit.
  • Very good place to learn Poltava region history. Recommended.
  • Interesting museum a lot of people don't go to Ukraine on trips through Europe so museums like this are very interesting
  • The excellent place!
