Even if you are not into contemporary art, do not miss this place! It is central located, around 500 meters from Maidan. Outstanding contemporary art exhibitions from ukrainian and international artists are shown. On top of that, it has large opening hours from Tuesday to Sunday 12 to 20:30 and it is FREE of charge. An absolute must see in... More

next to bessarabsky market, its philantropic funder let people free admission to spread lesser known art. In this case it was an exhibition of young chinese artists on modern art. Hard to describe but really touching.

If you want a break from classical churches and historical sites (and have an interest in art), the Pinchuk Art Centre is a great museum in the center of the city with a rotating display by contemporary artists. (And it's free.) On view was a fascinating and thought-provoking exhibition by sculptor Anish Kapoor, whose work ranges from Joseph Beuys-like accumulations... More

Nice place in the center of Kiev. Pinchuk Art center presents the Contemporary art. The display of center changes often. Interesting works of the Belgian artist Jan Fabr about a colonialism in Africa in Congo. Pictures are done from unusual material - beetles of burncows. A basic idea of many pictures of gallery is a fight against AIDS. Modern design,... More

Situated in the very heart of the capital - on Bessarabkaya square next the Khreshchatyk Street - Pinchuk Art Center is indeed worth a visit every time a new exhibition is in place. Having almost unlimited budgets and a great love for arts, Mr. Pinchuk and his curators always have something interesting & eye-opening in store for the visitors of... More

Was dragged here by my better half. Had a Chinese art exhibition on at the time, and was ok and quite informative. Entry is free as well. Quite a small museum, although it is moderately easy to get to. There is a cafe at the top - although considering it is owned by an (admittedly philanthropic) oligarch, it was not... More

Very nice art gallery. In the very center of the city. The entrance is free. Too much security that gives you the impression to be more in National Bank then in Art Gallery. It maybe not in the top ten things to see in Kiev but I would definitely recommend you to visit it if you were caught by rain... More

as of today (17 Nov 2013) the tripadvisor map shows this on "Vasiylvskaya" while the museum is on "Velka Vasiylvskaya" right in the centre and not five stop out of town as the map shows. Otherwise just go - nothing else like it in Kiev.
