Admission entrance to this place is very confusing. I am not fluent in Russian but I can understand most of what people are saying. This place had a number of different admission prices. And the woman selling them just kept talking way too fast! Why not just one admission fee for children and adults instead of a number of different... More

Like many museums here there isn't one price, you pay by exhibit. However they charge more for non-Ukranians. The exhibits are fine, everything is in Russian as expected, but you will pay more just for not speaking Russian. The best exhibits were closed with no explanation and the staff wasn't friendly.

If you have a few hours to spare in town, this is one place you don't want to miss. The museum building, though aged, has a variety of collections in 4 floors from ancient time to modern Ukraine. Some may think WWII era artifacts truly intriguing, as Kharkiv was one of the most fiercely fought city in Eastern Europe.

An interesting place to visit however the explanation of the exhibits is in Russian and the staff are still very Soviet style, I was lucky my friend could speak good English so I had it translated,but it is still worth a visit. Of course across the road from it is Kharkivs second Irish bar which again has great food and... More

They have some really cool stuff in here, but it is a shame that almost none of it is written in English. On the 3rd floor they have some signs in English, so that was nice. It's definitely worth a visit, but don't expect smiling and helpful service.

Conveniently located in the city centre next to Istoricheskiy Muzei metro station, not far from Pokrovsky and Assumption Cathedrals. I came here for the announced Scythian exhibition to only discover the new premises it was supposed to take place in under construction. But the main exhibition surely deserves to be seen, and it has rich Scythian collection, too. Very specific... More

This museum is a showpiece of the region, from Neolithic, Scythian to WWII. The museum's east side building is now covered with glass ceiling and facade, much like a contemporary European museum, which is still under construction. You will see a well-preserved T34/76 Soviet tank, which is designed and built in Kharkiv, just outside of the museum entrances.
