  • We loved visiting this museum. I was very surprised by how emotionally moving some of the exhibits are. We spent about 2 hours here and could have easily spent 3 or 4. The entire staff is so friendly and happy to share about the various times in history, exhibits they have, and their own stories. If you are interested in learning about Ukraine or have any family ties, I highly recommend stopping in and giving yourself at least an hour to visit. They do have free on site parking (I was slightly worried about parking before we got there). They have a large variety of beautiful items and history, along with information about current events. The only draw back was not having enough time to read and see everything. Many times when we go to a museum we don't read or see every little thing. But here I would absoutley have loved to taken the time.
  • Such a great museum for those with Ukrainian heritage or those wanting to learn more. Appears small, but they make very good use of their space. Very unique and educational with friendly staff. Will be visiting their rotating display again. Only $5 and one of the workers is even with you the entire time to further explain and answer questions
