A nice, cosy museum situated in the centre of Kyiv. The building is big and resembles the architecture of ancient temples. The exposition is chronologically built, and the halls are constructed in a round way, meaning that you enter the first hall and go from one hal to another without the fear of being lost and confused. On ferial days, especially in the mornings, there are not many people in the museum, but on weekends and holidays there are crowds. By the way, the museum stuff organized a children's room on the first floor. It is furnished with soft children chairs, and pencils and pieces of paper are put there for children to draw. Young people also can find a place there - the museum stairs are great to sit on and chat or read.

Overall, I think that museum successfully represents the history of Ukrainian art by displaying its masterpieces, but I hope that the museum will expand its territory and gain more buildings to be able to show more.

I enjoyed visiting the National Art Museum - the collection of the Ukrainian art is rather good but not enough for the national museum I think. If you compare it to national galleries of other European countries, it seems rather sad. So I would say it is worth visiting but don't expect too much of it. Another thing is the unfriendly staff - classy for Ukrainian museums, unfortunetaly.

Built between 1937 and 1939, the building originally housed the Kiev School of Music. Since 1944, it was converted to a history museum and houses many collections of printed books, paintings, sculptures as well as archaeological discoveries. It is located on Volodymyrska street (Metro Station: Poshtova Square) and is open every day except Wednesday from 10a.m to 5:30p.m.

It may not match major world museums, especially for size, but it has some lovely 19th century masterpieces by Repin and Vaznestov. Well worth a couple of visits.

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.
