Museum of Ethnography and Art Crafts

  Svobody prosp. 15 (Rynok pl. 10)      (+380) 32 297 01 57     more than a year ago
Known for its unique collection of Ukrainian cultural artefacts, this celebrated museum houses more than 83 thousand items. The stunning rugs and tapestries, delicate wooden crafts and ancient musical instruments provide vivid frames into the lives of the region’s past inhabitants. The clock exhibit is the largest and most valuable in Ukraine, but it’s the vibrant assortment of embroidered national attire that really stands out and tends to bring touring groups to a sudden halt. The collection of jewellery is also impressive and features a remarkable silver episcopal baton dated to the 11th-13th centuries. The main exposition is located within the former premise of a Galician-era bank. A second branch featuring fabrics, porcelain, Dutch wares and furniture from the Renaissance to the beginning of the 20th century is located at Rynok pl. 10.


Open 11:00 - 17:00. Closed Mon.

"Ethnographic" is a term probably not know to most Americans. I would call this a museum of the decorative arts: clocks, china, furniture, glassware, etc. Tastefully presented with English translations for most exhibits. Housed in a former Hungarian bank. Look for the horse drawn carriage and sleigh--You cannot miss these. Entrance fee is 10/person. Small gift shop. Very nice attendants.
