You'll be able to tour this quaint place in less than 45 minutes. The artwork (authentic Ukranian painted eggs), embroidering and quilting are exquisite. The docent was quite knowledgeable which made the visit that much more enjoyable. Of course, one can purchase eggs in the museum which we did!

This is a lovely little store, but, please don't be deceived that this qualifies as a museum. It consists of a 15 minute video about traditional egg decorating, display cases of the eggs, and 5-6 'family heriloom'-type artifacts. The rest is a gift shop with authentic Ukrainian items for sale. Find yourself some knick-knacks; you won't find a museum.

We screeched in from across the state just before closing and the kind staffer (Ellen? I'm sorry I've forgotten her name) let use stay to look around. Very nice little museum area. Beautiful embroidery, completely different than anything we have in my family. Prairie church altar preserved nicely. Bought a few things, including a book compiled by the UCI founder... More

Lovely, knowledgeable people run a small museum (just enough info to absorb in a visit, well organized and with a cute gift shop). If you can, stop by mid-week when they have pyrohi.

This unique center shows a very important history and culture of the Dickinson area. They have a wonderful display, special gift items and you have the opportunity to meet descendants of German-Russians and Ukranians. They serve traditional foods during the week and during the Ethnic Fair in August. They sponsor a Ukranian festival which features a week of Ukranian dance... More

A small place over 10 thousand km. from Ukraine, with food, and lovely examples of Ukrainian arts and crafts with a fine library. A true cultural center tastefully presented to the public, with the hope of showing the people who are Ukrainians and what do they do, while pointing out their contributions to the settlement and development of North Dakota....

Very nice stop to learn about the culture. They have a festival in July that I have attended in the past that is wonderful. The Institute location is open varied hours. They have a beautiful assortment of eggs for purchase and often have meals open to the public.

We had a little bit of time before heading south so we stopped by. My wife is into the Pysanky eggs and they have a nice collection, though less now than after an accident. They also have supplies to make them, various Ukrainian gifts and even food. Note the website advertises a festival held in July. The UCI seems to... More
