There is no English anywhere in this place so the headset is a must. Its pretty small also but there is some cool stuff to see and is well worth the visit.

Take time and costing a small 20 Hrv to enter, this museum shows you the personal aspect of the greater human impact of the Chernobyl disaster. There is also the knowledge of the Fukushima disaster in an area within museum.

Very interesting, well presented and thought provoking. Be sure to get audio guide (100 minutes). There is a model depicting the catastrophe and several graphic displays.

Visiting this museum, in combination with an actual visit to Chernobyl is a great mix. Here you get to learn a lot about what has happened. I strongly recommend to pay a little bit extra for the audioguides (English available) which has tons of information....More

I really enjoyed this museum. It looked closed when we arrived but we tried the door and it was actually open. It's definitely worth paying for the audio tour as there's no English text at all describing the exhibits. The audio tour was very thorough...More

When you get off at the nearest metro it is a five minute walk but no one knew where it was. It was only a small museum but a lot of facts especially the link with Japan.

This is out of the way of most other main attractions and probably not something to make a priority. The ticket lady was extremely rude. We noticed everyone had headsets or a phone to listen to audio. We didn't get any, but we asked and...More

Not much to see! Not worth a trip. Basically is 3 rooms, and no translations on the items themselves. You can get a guided headset.

Ok museum overall, except for the loud Babushkas who ruined the experience. They're part of the staff and 4 of them sat in the hallway chatting and laughing loudly. Hard to appreciate the sacrifice and horror of the catastrophy with these annoying women working there....More
