Worth walk around definitely but only if you speak Ukrainian or have someone that can translate for you. The tour is done only in Ukrainian so if you dont understand it will get no benefit from the tours. Beautiful gardens and property

That's the place where the greatest Russian physician lived after being dropped out of favour by the tzar's establishment. Very well kept and maintained. Absolutely worth seeing.

Well kept grounds and building. As far as authenticity in the museum, apart from the medical instruments, very little is original. The guided tour (only in russian) is long winded and almost "propaganda-ish" in its telling. Be aware the guide will tell you off if you wander into the next room too early!!! lol!!

The estate is well kept though there’s practically no authentic furniture (but in Pirogov’s study). Some aged moulding, parquet and wallpapers still preserved. Pirogov’s surgical instruments are of great interest (there are plenty of them). Choose a workday for visiting as there are too many tourists on holidays.
