“No English or any other foreign language”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Visited the museum in June 2013. Whilst it may perhaps be interesting to the Ukrainian population there is no explanation whatsoever in English or any other language. A lot of photo's of persons and documents in either Ukrainian or Russian. Spending a mere 10 UAH entrance fee can hardly be considered a waste, but I was no wiser when I left the museum than before I entered...

“A wet day in the fog illuminated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Friendly staff who were helpful and social - keen to converse with you.
My father liked the parquet flooring, whilst my life partner loved the part about the Polish invasion - which explains the current day situation in L'viv. My son learned to walk up the stairs as well.
A lot of the information was bi-lingual, but it needs more of this.

“breath taking architechture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

I was here in 2001 with the military on a muti-national joint training operation. I had the opportunity to visit the L'viv. I found it amazing and a beautiful city. The architecture is incredible, everywhere you go. If you have the opportunity this is a place to see the sites. Beautiful museums and restaurants, great shopping too.

It's all in Ukrainian. It would be nice if they had some English.

“Good museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2010

This museum is quite interesting. There a lot of fascinating things to see.
What is missing is some organisation and some more display in English.
The personnel is very kind and try to explain you something even though not speaking English (or just very little).
Anyway a good experience.
