Located smack in Center Town. Exhibits change periodically so it is best to check the blillboard outside of the museum to see what they are hosting. You can enter the Museumnfor free to visit the small but quite interesting boutique on the first floor. One can find beautiful jewelry, ceramics, Ukrainian Easter eggs, (pysanky) and art work to take home.... More

Very nice clocks collection and Art Deco posters. The building is super beautiful inside with large wooden stairs. Most of the explanations are in English, with a few exceptions. Definitely worth seeing it. Ticket price is only 20 pp

The entrance is not easy to find - at the back of one of the mining café's souvenir shops. Interesting artefacts of country life not so long ago. A bit old and dusty, but to me a must see, a good counterpart to the phony everything around.

We were a little confused after we went through the ground floor of the museum, with two rooms of well preserved porcelain, wooden furniture and odd pieces of tapestry. They are all pretty to look at, some with English explanation and some don't. After going up to the first floor where there were two rooms with antique clocks, then another... More

It was on our to do list. Although we did not expect much and surprise surprise - we were amazed by the amount and quality of the artefacts! It is a large museum, interesting from the beginning to the end. We spent over an hour walking, watching and reading about historical pieces. Have to mention the building itself - impressive!...

A large museum located on the main thoroughfare which contains some beautiful antique furniture. It was the favourite museum fro one person in our group. It is not very busy and photos are allowed. The admittance price is very low! Very well worth 1 hour.

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.

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... More

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... More
