National Museum of the History of UkraineKyiv, Ukraine
4.2 / 21
The National Museum of the History of Ukraine offers an enlightening experience for those interested in learning about the country's rich history. While the lack of English texts may initially disappoint, hiring a guide is highly recommended. The guide, Alex, impressed visitors with his extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for Ukrainian history, providing explanations for over 1.5 hours. The museum is located in a beautiful building, but the renovation outside may lead visitors to believe it is closed. However, a small note on the front door directs them to the entrance in the backyard, which could be better marked. Inside, visitors can admire the statues and sculptures that showcase a common artistic language spanning hundreds of years. The paintings shed an objective light on history, and some visitors even developed a fondness for the representation of a drunk peasant. English explanations are limited, making the museum less engaging for English speakers. However, its location is still appreciated by visitors. Some reviewers found the museum disorganized and lacking in exhibits, with limited information in English. Others felt that the recent addition of more English information was a positive improvement. Criticisms include the strange arrangement of the exhibits, the lack of translations, closed or empty halls, and issues with the lighting in one section. Some visitors suggest investing more money to enhance the museum's educational value. Despite these drawbacks, the museum offers an interesting insight into Ukraine's history, and hiring a guide is recommended for a better understanding of the exhibits.
