It's not a big museum, so there's only so much they can display. In the space they have though, they manage to present a good amount of art, and quality makes up for quantity. The highlight is the basement, where a number of pieces are...More

It's a well organized and aesthetically pleasant museum about Ukrainian history, with the emphasis being on 19th century clothing and an art collection on the first floor. It's a nice stroll for an hour, but nothing really that excites the eye. If you have some...More

The museum has pretty good content, but it is rather small. I believe, knowing the size of Ukrainian community in the area, they could have had a lot more! While the exhibitions are interesting, they're too tiny to call a museum. It is more of...More

I love small museums in that you don't feel the pressure of trying to get to see everything. Smaller museums allow you to visit at your leisure. This museum always has new exhibits so always worth the visit when you're in town.

The exhibition of the works of Jacques Hnizdovsky (1915-1985) is comprised of more than 100 works by Hnizdovsky, including oils, woodcuts, linocuts, ceramics, sculptures, drawings, and more. Contemplative, piercing and lyrical, this is an exhibit not to be missed. The exhibition will be on display...More

My wife has a deep appreciation for the arts. The most artistic thing I've done in the last year is sing in the shower. I was fascinated by the museum and its avant garde collection. There is a small collection of items from the Maidan...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
