This fascinating museum has a superb collection of authentic garments and decorative arts from Ukraine with extensive didactic panels explaining the history and politics of the region. Changing exhibitions add to the reason to visit.

After seeing all of the top museums of Chicago, the Ukrainian Museum was by far the best one we saw. The dedication of the women working there and their sharing the love of their country and their traditions was very moving. A wonderful experience!
