Overall impression: friendly staff, even without a tour, explain to you where to go. Adult ticket - 30 hryvnias, you can take photos on your phone for free.
The museum itself is somewhat different from other local history museums where I have been. .. Read more »There are no halls with a chronological description of all historical periods. On the first floor there is a natural history of Zhytomyr region of 1917-1920, on the second floor there is an ethnographic (at the time of the visit there is a corner in the corridor) and an art gallery.
First: I want to mention a talented person who made all the animals in nature halls so emotional.
Second: an art gallery is just a must visit. There are works of rare Austrian, Italian, Polish, Dutch masters, which were collected by local collectors, in particular, Baron de Chaudouard. Even if you have been to the world's leading galleries and passed by the works of these artists, you are unlikely to pay much attention to them (because the paintings hung next to the famous). And in the Zhytomyr Museum there is an opportunity to look at this layer of fine arts with new eyes.

The Episcopal House (Museum of Local Lore now) was built in 1909 and stolen by the Soviets in 1919. Since independence, the authorities have been in no hurry to return the stolen premises.
