Incredible collection of religious painting (icons) from C12th - c18th. One of the greatest collections in the Slavic world. Plus you've got a very good collection of Ukrainian art 19th-20th and a phenomenal temporary exhibition of the famous Ukrainian artist - Ivan Truss. There is...More

I came an hour before closing. Most of the museum's content are orthodox icons and similar religious paintings. I wasn't very excited about the collection, it's just ok. Women who work there start locking rooms even before end of the working time, so I had...More
