“Small and nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The museum owns a good collection of old Ukrainian art, and also a good collection of Soviet art.
It is not too big, so you'll need no more than 2 hours to see all exhibitions.
My personal favorite is the collection of old Ukrainian wooden sculpture and ikons - it's really different from European art.

“Good exhibition of Ukrainian art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2010

The National Museum in Kiyv organises various exhibitions and also has a permanent exhibition which is worth visiting. Despite the rather sombre looks of the museum itself (it looks like a greyish greek temple), it offers a valuable insight into Ukrainian art from the 12th century till the 20th century. You will notice how abruptly the whole style of Ukrainian painters changed when they were more and more influenced by Western art in the 18th and 19th centuries. You’ll also notice that they have developed a unique style. Definitely worth visiting (they’re open on Saturdays unitl 7pm).
