“Huge collection of artefacts that will interest almost anybody.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I payed 10 UAH to view the entire collection which was huge and could keep one entertained for hours. Gives a great insight into how the aristocracy treasured there collection by making unique and rare pieces of art.

“superb ikon exhibition”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We visited the new ikon exhibition and were very impressed. These arent the golden icons of cathedrals but the folk art versions saved from rural churches, beautifully painted. Some very spectacular large altar pieces, and a show which traces the evolution of the ikon form. The english speaking guide put in far too much information, and there are no guidebooks or postcards yet and you cant take photos. We visited lviv at the end of a superb tour of rural ukraine with experience ukraine, a fascinating city well worth a visit and much more interesting than budapest.

“superb, secret icon exhibition”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Although the guided tour went into far too much detail the icons were stunning. It is a pity there are no postcards or books with a few pictures to show people at home. These are not the standard jewelled icons, but very beautiful folk art items rescued from country churches. We went as a part of the Lviv city tour after a fantastic week exploring rural Ukraine with Experience Ukraine. Would visit again when I next come to Lviv.
