We liked the 20th century art collection, with its mixture of Soviet and Ukrainian themes. There are some famous paintings in the 19th century art as well. There are 4 exhibit halls and you can pick & choose which ones you wish to see. The entrance at the time was 10 Ukrainian hrivna (about $0.45 US) for each exhibit hall.... More

I liked this museum, it had some really cool and beautiful paintings. Some paintings were in a bad shape, but that didn't bother me. The lightings can be rather annoying because sometimes it gets difficult to see the paintings properly.
