Came here by an accident and was really pleased with this beautiful architecture. It's really tragic what happened and it's important for us to remember, so it never happens again. Recommend everyone to visit it if you are in the area.

I think everyone should visit this museum. It is a part of our history that we should never forget. It leaves you with a good reason to think about how lucky you are living today

On your way to Pechersk Lavra from the Arsenalna metro, walk on the left side of Lavrska street. You will pass the Eternal Glory Park then you will see the Holodomor Memorial. Below the memorial is a very informative exhibition. There is digital information available...More

I was deeply moved by my visit to the Holodomor memorial and museum. The exterior monuments are interesting to take in and thought provoking. The museum itself (down the stairs at the base of the memorial column) is small but informative. If you're a non-Ukrainian/non-Russian...More
